Ingredients: Fine White Tea buds from the Fujian Province in Southern China.
Suggested Water Temperature: 170 F – Suggested Infusion Time: 6 Minutes – One serving makes several infusions.
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 Tea tea into the preheated tea pot or preferred cup. Pour the hot water into the tea. Let infuse up to 6 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 Tea is offered as a choice with light foods, vegetarian, macrobiotic or vegetable recipes and special desserts including fruits and lighter French cheese selections.
