White Tea

The term White Tea is often used to refer to tea that is merely dried with no additional processing, some to tea made from the buds and immature tea leaves picked shortly before the buds have fully opened and allowed to wither and dry in natural sun, while others include tea buds and very young leaves which have been steamed or fired before drying. Most definitions agree, that white tea is not rolled or oxidized, resulting in a flavour characterized as "lighter" than green or traditional black teas. In spite of its name, brewed white tea is pale yellow. Its name derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which give the plant a whitish appearance. The unopened buds are used for some types of white tea. The selection of raw material in white tea manufacture is extremely stringent; only the plucking of young tea leaves with much fine hair can produce good-quality white tea of a high pekoe (grading) value.

    White Tea Jun Shan Silver Needle (Yellow) Tea

    $35.00

    China, Hunan Provence

    Jun Shan Silver Needle is one of China's most famous teas composed of perfectly formed, tender buds. Only produced on Jun Shan Island on Dong Ting Lake, Hunan Province and only for a couple of weeks a year. Yellow teas are processed in a similar way to green teas: picking, withering, firing and one extra step, in which the tea is wrapped in paper and gently warmed (40-60 degrees). this softens the flavour of the tea and removes the vegetal flavour present in green tea.

    Mellow and refreshing, a shade darker than a robust Green, developing a light amber to Bristol Cream colour in the cup. Scents of nectar and a hint of remaining vegetation with a touch of smoke to the nose. A mellow, liquor like, sweet taste. Antioxidant level high. Caffeine level low.

    Bring water to 180 F. 1 tsp per 6 oz. cup. Infuse for 3 - 7 minutes. Multiple infusions. Contains caffeine.
