So far, we’ve talked about two true teas from the Camelia Sinensis plant – Black Tea and Green Tea. Today we’re going to talk about the third kind of tea that comes from this amazing plant – White Tea.
White Tea Characteristics
White tea is the most delicate of all tea varieties.
It is hand-plucked when the young buds are still covered in fine white hairs.
This tea variety is harvested before the plant’s leaves open fully.
It is wilted and dried quickly without oxidization.
White tea is a lighter flavor than green tea.
Using a scale of 1-3 teacups, White Tea contains 1 teacups of caffeine.
White Tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes and can be steeped three times. What this means is that from one scoop of tea, you get 3 (THREE!) servings!
White tea is delicious both hot and iced, but I much prefer it iced in the summer months. Our new Limoncello and La La Lavender are delicious both iced and hot.
Current White Tea Flavors Available from Steeped Tea
- La La Lavender
