Pai Mu Tan leaves are plucked from a special varietal tea bush and the leaves are allowed to dry naturally in the sun. White teas have extremely high levels of anti-oxidants in comparison with most other teas so are good for your health. Do not be misled by the mildness of your tea, it still has comparatively high levels of caffeine and tannin.
Pai Mu Tan can be drunk at any time of the day.
Hot Tea brewing method
This tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that has been boiled and then allowed to cool to 80'-90'C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
Alternatively as with all top quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot, pour in boiled water that has been freshly drawn and allowed to cool slightly, cover and allow to steep for 2-4 minutes (to taste), stir, pour into your cup but do not add milk or sugar since white tea is enjoyed ‘straight-up’. Top up the water until the flavour is exhausted.
