Product Description

Details

A perfect tea for those new to the white tea family. Shou Mei white is a bolder tasting brew, due to using the lower down leaves which are more mature and thus more rich in fruity flavors rather than the more common floral tones. These leaves are simply withered and develop a variety of colors rang ing from white, black, green, and burnt umber. Compare this with White Peony, and Silver Needle teas to see the dif ference the age of leaves makes in a cup.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 170°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 2
Infusions: 1-3

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
