Probably one of the best known whites teas
Probably one of the best known white 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.
China White Tea
I've had this both brewed in a normal teapot and gong-fu style in my gaiwan - it's lovely! It re-brews multiple times, and tastes mildly sweet and grassy, a great introduction to white tea!
I originally bought this tea as my first foray into white teas and I am so glad I did. Being able to rebrew the sames leaves multiple times is brilliant especially if you're sat work at a desk all day. Definitly get value for money. Highly recommend to my friends and family.
