Like many things in the world of tea, there are no universally accepted definitions for what white tea technically is.  It is generally excepted, however, that the leaves are minimally processed after picking so as to avoid as much oxidation as possible.  It is also most likely that the dried leaves will be left open and unrolled, resulting in a beautiful, untainted, natural appearance.  This does mean that the leaves are remarkably brittle and difficult to transport, lending to the white teas delicate charm, as well as to its sometimes prohibitive cost. Despite the name, white tea when brewed will produce a pale yellow liquor with light, nuanced flavours and a delicate summer-time sweetness.  Overall, the experience of a white tea from start to finish is a study in beauty and subtlety and a genuine treat for tea veterans and novices alike.

Brewing Suggestions

Bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon for each cup into the pot. Allow the water to cool to the appropriate temperature, then pour in the pot, cover and allow to steep for 3 to 4 minutes - according to taste & tea type.

White tea leaves can be brewed repeatedly, until the flavour of the tea is exhausted. This makes white tea much cheaper per cup than it would seem. We recommend brewing in a re-usable tea infuser, as this allows you to simply remove the leaves from the water as soon as it has reached the appropriate brew time.

 
White teas are normally served without milk and sugar.

 

Iced Tea Brewing

Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the amount of tea leaves per cup. 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 cold brew the tea by placing the tea leaves in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.

 

Tea, in Brief

Tea is fascinating!  It has a rich history that spans back 5000 years to its origins in ancient China.  Since then it has become much loved all over the world,  not least of all here in the UK. The standard British response to anything has always been to “pop the kettle on”.  A nice hot cuppa soothes the soul and bolsters morale, but the long-lasting health benefits of tea such as high levels of antioxidants and improved heart health are now well documented. The world of tea is enjoying a revival, with many people making the switch away from tea bags and back to better tasting, healthier and more eco-friendly loose leaf tea.  Thank you for being a part of this new tea renaissance.  We sincerely hope you enjoy the teas in this pack.
