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. White tea, when served will often have more subtle flavours than that of black or green tea, but you can still get a rich and full flavour by using a bit more tea in the brew.
Japan only exports about 1-2 percent of its total production and recently has become a leading importer of the finest teas in the world. Over half of the yearly production of Japanese tea comes from Shizuoka. The production of green tea entails the steaming of the green leaf and hand or machine rubbing. The teas are then pan-fried or basket fired which gives them a distinctive appearance and glossy look and feel. These methods give a taste that is light in colour but rich and full in the cup.
Hot Tea Brewing Method
Heat water to 180°F or 80°C. Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup into your teapot, and add 1 for the pot (for a more intense flavour, add a bit more tea). Pour the water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup. When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times.
Some like to brew this straight in the cup without an infuser, but be careful not to drink the leaves at the bottom of your cup. The pattern of the leaves is said to tell your fortune.
Milk not recommended for green tea.
Also delicious as iced tea - especially for those long, hot summer days.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a general rule of thumb is to double the amount used. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
