What are White Teas?

The youngest leaves and buds of the Camellia Sinensis plant are used to make white teas. White teas are minimally processed and allowed to wither and dry in natural sunlight, which helps preserve the leaves' delicate flavor and aroma. The leaves and buds are hand-picked when still covered in fine white hair, which is why it is called white tea. White teas are known for their delicate, subtle flavor and are usually lower in caffeine than other tea types.

The infusion of white peonies offers unmatchable subtle tones and complexity needed to make the perfect cup of hot or iced tea.

How are White Teas Produced?

White teas are produced using a minimal processing method that preserves the delicate flavor and aroma of the leaves. The production process for white tea typically involves the following steps:

  1. Hand-picking: The youngest buds and leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant are hand-picked when still covered in fine white hair.
  2. Withering: After picking, the leaves are allowed to wither in natural sunlight. This process helps reduce the leaves' moisture content and makes them more pliable.
  3. Drying: The leaves are left to dry in the sun or a warm, well-ventilated room. This process helps to preserve the delicate flavor and aroma of the leaves.
  4. Sorting: Sorting is a process of removing any stems, twigs, or other debris.
  5. Grading: The leaves are then graded based on their quality, with the highest grade reserved for the youngest buds and leaves.
  6. Packaging: Once the product is packaged, it is stored in a cool and dry place.

White teas are produced on a small scale, in limited quantity, and considered rare and expensive. The minimal processing method and the care taken in selecting the leaves make it a unique and delicate tea.

How to brew white tea?

  1. Heat water to a temperature of about 160-170°F (71-77°C). 
  2. Use about 1-2 teaspoons of loose-leaf white tea or one tea bag per 8 Oz (240ml) of water.
  3. Pour the hot water over the white tea leaves and allow them to steep for 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Strain the tea leaves from the water and enjoy your tea.
  5. Avoid adding milk or sugar to white tea, as it can overpower the delicate flavor of the tea.
  6. Avoid over steeping, as it can result in a bitter taste.
  7. You can re-steep white tea leaves up to 2-3 times, depending on the quality of the leaves and personal preference.

It's important to note that brewing white tea can be tricky due to the delicacy of the leaves, so it's best to start with a lower temperature and steeping time, then adjust as needed.
