Any Swashbuckler players out there? Pathfinder's beloved dexterity-based melee fighter runs on panache like fuel, pulling off tricks with great flair and flash. This tea is a tribute to such a fighting style. Also full of flash and flair, this classic flavor pairing of lightly tart blackberries and smooth, herby sage mixes with a oolong base that we here at Phoenix Pearl dearly love: Bai Hao. Also known as "Oriental Beauty," "White Tip," "Braggart's Tea," "Dongfang Meiren," and probably some other names too, Bai Hao is made by letting tiny insects called Leaf Hoppers gnaw on the leaves before they're picked, then letting the leaf recover by pumping chlorophyll and nutrients into the leaf to heal it, at which point they pick it. It results in extremely rich, vibrant, beautiful flavors alone, making one of the most pleasant oolongs you can find. It also makes for a perfect base for this flavor profile. Trust us, this tea has the flourish to pull off its many flavors. Try it out!

 

Please note that we list BOTH water temperatures typical for black teas and green teas. This is intentional. Tea Master Gwen not only blends every tea made in-house, but also personally tastes every single tea or blend on the menu that she doesn't blend herself, and she tastes it with multiple water temperatures at multiple steep times to ensure you get the perfect steeping suggestions. She tried the Panache with both boiling and 80° water both, back and forth, side-by-side tasting, and she could not honestly decide which one tasted better. So you decide! If you do it with boiling water, it's going to taste bolder, richer, more in-your-face. If you do it at green tea temp, it'll come out more smooth, elegant, subtle, but still present. Both are good with sugar, and both are delightful!
