A sheer decadence, white tea comes from the same plant as green, oolong, and black teasCamellia sinensis. White tea, however, is least processed of all the teas. Named for the silver fuzz on the bud when the leaves are picked, white tea is often described as light, fresh, and sweet. No matter what your tastes, this pale yellow cup is simply divine, a rare treat for special occasions.

amount2 grams tea per 8 ounces water
NOTE: This large leaf white tea might require two tablespoons to reach suggested two grams.
infusion method White tea has particularly delicate large leaves and extra care should be taken for an optimum flavor experience.

Though tea balls and strainers are often used for tea that isn't pre-bagged, ideal methods of infusing loose leaf teas employ strainers that allow for the tea leaves to completely unfurl and release their flavor.

Some tea enthusiasts dispense with using strainers altogether and drop leaves in the pot directly and then strain the tea when serving into cups. When employing this method be sure to pour out all tea or remaining liquid will get bitter from over-steeping.
notes on tea strength The strength and flavor of tea is a personal experience.

We aim to provide times and temperatures that reduce the risk of allowing the actual tea leaves (or other delicate herbs in blends) to taste bitter due to too much steep time or to get scorched from too much heat.

If you desire a stronger cup, we suggest using more tea rather than a longer steep time to minimize the potential for a more bitter flavor.
