White Rose (2 oz)
White Rose Tea | In Pursuit of Tea
This unusual white tea is from Yunnan, not Fujian Province, and is made in Jinggu County out of the native Bai Hao variety. Abundant silky silver buds are interspersed with small, dark olive leaves, which produce a straw yellow liquor in the cup and a full, floral aroma. The flavor is slightly earthy, characteristic of Yunnan teas, and reminiscent of a sheng pu-erh. The infused leaves maintain a beautiful sweet fragrance, and can be infused multiple times.

How to Brew White Teas

White tea is best brewed with warm water ranging from 170-185 F. One way to achieve this temperature is to carefully remove the top to your kettle: look for tiny bubbles forming on the heating element or rising from the bottom. Generally these teas are extremely lightweight, so be sure to add enough leaf to the cup or pot. Try a long first steep, 3 to 4 minutes; add more time for subsequent steeps. This extended time is necessary to allow the leaves enclosing the bud to open up and release their flavor to the cup.

White teas are perfect to enjoy in the evening after a light dinner. Avoid drinking them after eating spicy foods, as much of their delicacy will be lost. They are also an alternative for people who are interested in the health benefits of green teas, but find their characteristic vegetal taste too strong for their palate.
