Only small amounts of this selection are harvested and made available to the market. The infusion is clear & pale. Serve without milk or sweetener as a refreshing all-day tea and digestive or precious dinner beverage with light foods and special desserts. White Tea qualities.

Ingredients: Prime Whole Leaf Green Tea from China.
Suggested Water Temperature: 180 F – Suggested Infusion Time: 4 Minutes.
Preparation: Bring fresh water to the boil. Let it cool down for 2 minutes. Warm up your tea pot by rinsing it with hot water. Fill one teaspoon per 6 oz cup of this White Monkey tea into the preheated tea pot or preferred cup. Pour the hot water into the tea. Let infuse up to 4 Minutes and serve. Remove infuser or pour your tea into another tea-pot or thermos carafe. Using an infuser or ‘Permanent Tea Filter’ for your cup or pot makes it easy to separate the leaves from the beverage after steeping. Most customers like to prepare another infusion with the same leaves.
Culinary notes: Because of its fresh and lighter green tea character this White Monkey is offered as a choice with light foods, vegetarian, macrobiotic or vegetable recipes and special desserts including fruits and lighter French cheese selections.
