Light of Day's All White Tea

Bottoms Up
By Kristi Kates | Feb. 18, 2017

To accompany this all white season, what better than an appropriately named steaming sweet cup of hot white tea?

This different twist on a winter warmer from Light of Day Organics is a certified organic, certified Demeter Biodynamic tea that’s lightly caffeinated and grown right at Light of Day’s own organic Leelanau County Farm.

Resembling the classic Bai Mudan tea for which each “pluck” takes one leaf shoot and two immediately adjoining leaves, this northern Michigan version offers an aromatic brew with a pastel straw color and a fresh, faintly floral flavor.

Steep it for about three minutes in freshly boiled water at 130 degrees, and you’ll have a cup perfect for watching the latest coating of the white stuff fall outside your window.

Get the All White Tea at Light of Day Organics at 3502 E. Traverse Hwy, Traverse City. For more information, visit or call (231) 228-7234. Open weekends through the winter months.
