Product Description

Details

This is a tea of many names. “Silver Tip Oolong” refers to the white, silvery edges of the leaves. “Champagne Oolong” is due to the sweet, Darjeeling-esque muscatel linger. Its signature flavor develops from the leaves being nibbled by Leafhoppers while the plant is growing. The insect sucks juices from the plant, causing the bush to react and produce compounds that, luckily, taste great and lend sweetness. The tea is grown at a low altitude in a warm climate specifically to encourage these insects. This tea is harvested in the summer and is fairly heavily oxidized, but not roasted. Its aroma is naturally fruity with a sweet tasting, bright reddish-orange liquor.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
Infusions: 1-6

China White Peony "Bai Mu Dan" White Tea

White teas are made only from the newly sprouted buds and/or young leaves of the tea plant. The buds are heat braised in covered pans or dried in direct sun with minimal superficial oxidization. Classic style white peony is made in April, when the leaves are at their tastiest. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined. The flavor is delicate, herbaceous, with an autumnal aroma and a very smooth, sweet, nutty flavor.

Steep Time: 30 seconds-3 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
Infusions: 1-3
