Introducing the perfect cup of tea. It’s pure, premium white tea laced with our favorite confection—rich, creamy butterscotch. Sweet, simple and surprisingly sophisticated. Trust us, you may not be ready for this.
Like many of our white tea blends, Sucré is made using White Peony tea leaves. For more information on White Peony, go here.
White teas consist of only the rare, delicate buds of the tea plant or just the bud and the first two leaves. They offer a soft, subtle flavor profile that is often quite complex and naturally sweet due to the high concentration of nutrients, particularly glucose, often present in the bud.
White tea differs from various other types of tea in that it is less processed. It comes from the same Camellia Sinensis plant as all other tea; however, the leaves are not manipulated to encourage oxidation (as with oolongs and black teas), nor are they heated to prevent oxidation (as with green teas). White tea is simply withered to remove the moisture from the leaves and then dried to remove any remaining humidity not eliminated during the withering process. Loose leaf white tea represents tea in its most natural, unaltered state.
Sucré is French for sugar. Take away the accent over the e and it becomes the fourth most populated city in Brazil. Sucré makes a wonderful after dinner tea. Drink it alone to satisfy that sweet craving or pair it with apple pie, creme brulee or a salted caramel brownie.
We’ve also been known to drink Sucré over breakfast paired with oatmeal or cinnamon rolls. During afternoon tea, try it with cinnamon scones.
We recommend steeping Sucré for 3 minutes at 180°.
