Probably one of the best known whites teas
Probably one of the best known whites teas, also known as White Peony, this classic is picked from the first tea buds of Spring and dried to produce the tea in its purest form.
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is too fierce for white teas. So, for just-off the boil water, simply boil the kettle, let it sit for three to four minutes, then brew your tea, 2+ mins, a little honey or sugar, no milk but perhaps a slice of lemon. This will re-infuse well two or three timse
These leaves are not fermented or processed but, rather, left to dry naturally in the sun. The high proportion of buds, with their silver fuzz, result in a white/light coloured tea. Brew very lightly for a smooth, fresh taste, longer brew for a sharper flavour. White tea is potent, with three times the antioxidant properties of other types of teas
