“A woman's dream”: an ever-popular white tea, with a subtle and fruity taste

Specially created for Mother’s Day, this recipe that embodies femininity right to the very last flower has quickly become an essential part of our range of organic and fair trade white teas. If you love sweet and fruity flavours, come and discover the secrets of « A woman’s dream » and fall in love with this delicious white tea that’s sure to join your list of must-haves!

When the freshness of a mango and peach duo meets the sweetness of white tea

The magic of the peach-mango combination is an immediate taste sensation as it comes into play on a delicate base of white tea – made up of whole tea leaves and buds picked from tea trees (Camellia Sinensis) and simply withered and dried. Much appreciated for its freshness, colour, fruitiness and its beautiful sprinkling of rose petals, a cup of this in-house recipe is an invitation to daydream for a comforting break that’s full of flavour.

A gourmet drink dedicated to all women in the world of tea

« A woman’s dream » is a true ode to femininity and has a special place in our range. Arlette Rohmer, founder of Les Jardins de Gaïa, has always loved to go and meet the women who work in the different tea fields every day where they make up the majority of the workforce. These women who are seeking empowerment occupy increasingly important positions in the world of tea, women such as Bhawana Rai who, after an exemplary career in business, became the first woman to run a tea garden in Darjeeling (Samabeong).

The women we meet in the tea gardens or the rooibos plantations have so many qualities, be it know-how, attention to detail or a sense of organisation. The regular income received from tea grown with organic farming and fair trade allows them to dream of a better future and actively consider other spin-off activities, with courage and imagination. Whether it be making and selling handmade baskets in Kerala in India, opening a guesthouse in Heiveld in South Africa, manufacturing rooibos-based cosmetics in Wupperthal, or even opening a home-made clothing store in Sri Lanka, initiatives are being developed everywhere by the women who work with us. These women, who make their dreams come true, continue to inspire us…
