Madame Flavour sends love in a teacup

Madame Flavour sends love in a teacup

This Valentine’s Day surprise and delight the love of your life with a cup (or two) of Madame Flavour’s most romantic tea: White with Rose.

Incorporating a seductive blend of first-grade loose peony white tea, and finished with a scattering of rose petals; tea devotees will be delighted by its unique delicate scent and smooth, almost sweet flavour.

Historically, rose tea was favoured and drunk exclusively by Chinese royalty. Today it’s a ‘must have’ for a romantic breakfast in bed, a seductive night cap or any other time or occasion that you feel needs a loving touch.

In keeping with Madame Flavour’s astute attention to detail, each serving is lovingly enveloped in a silken infuser pod that allows the longer leaf to gracefully unfurl to its full potential, maximising taste, and creating a visual feast of colour and beauty.

The peony white tea is sourced from the renowned Fujian province in China, where it is picked lovingly by hand for only a few weeks in early spring each year, and gently dried in the sun.

About Madame Flavour’s White with Rose blend

• Peony white tea comes from the same species as green and black tea.

• White tea is the rarest and most exclusive of teas, comprising many unopened buds.

• The buds are covered in fine white hairs, giving this unique tea the lighter colour for which it is named.

• Research shows that white tea has the highest proportion of antioxidants of all tea varieties available on the market today and is lauded for its extraordinary health benefits.

In addition to ‘White with Rose’, Madame Flavour has fused other classic tea blends from around the world with unique touches to create a more thoughtful and delightfully personal range of teas. These include: Signature Blend; Grey de Luxe; Sultry Chai; Green, Jasmine and Pear; and Mint Lavender Tisane.

Madame Flavour is available from selected Countdown stores. RRP: $6.99 for 18 infuser pods. Visit to find out more.
