Chef's Notes:
blending tea, mood, and color

“Asian pear is poached in pomegranate juice to achieve that vibrant red hue and to create a mood of sophistication. The tartness of the fruit also worked perfectly with the Organic Imperial Oolong simple syrup, bringing out the honey notes in the poaching liquid.”

-Chef Christine Yen

“I thought notes of vanilla bean would pair nicely with the sweet palate of Organic Imperial Oolong. Then I used pomegranate juice when poaching the Asian pear, producing a rich ruby color and a tartness to complement the tea.”

Symbolism of the Dragon :

The Dragon signifies noble strength and imperial power while its red hue is associated with the Fire element. What a perfect match for the sophisticated palate of Organic Imperial Oolong with its estate leaves, hand-picked at dawn to capture flavor at its peak.

“All-seeing eyes reflect ancient knowledge and strength. Flying where mists embrace stone, the mystical animal watches protectively over the world below.”
