Features:

Pekoe White, Shan Bai Cha, plucked from Taiwan’s wild camellia hybrids at the elevation of 1800 m, these young silver buds promise an amazing experience for all white tea enthusiasts.

What makes Pekoe White so different is when it is harvested, how it is processed and who makes it. While the leaves and buds are plucked, they are taken to dry for at least 72 hours and the oxidation process is halted. Because of the minimal processing of white tea, it retains a high amount of antioxidants with umami and sweet which makes it with extremely high value. This Pekoe White special edition is made by the tea master Mister Xie.

Compared to the other types of tea, white tea has been said to contain the least amount of caffeine. This is because the young leaves have not been able to mature and when brewing using less than boiling water of only 60-70 degree Celsius for only 3 minutes don’t allow the caffeine to be pulled out of the leaves. 

The leaves themselves have silvery white hairs on the unopened buds that give the dried tea its whitish appearance. The brewed tea liquor itself takes on a pale yellow hue. It specifically has an extraordinary floral aroma, a delicate honey-sweet flavor, and a fruity fragrance, soothing and inspiring a sense of calm when you sip it, smooth and refreshing makes you relax, recalls you the refreshing in a sunny spring morning, which you, White Tea Lovers, won’t miss it out.

Brewing tips:  

The water used to steep this tea should be about 60-70 degree Celsius. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves for about every 150c.c. of water. A steeping time of about 3 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration, 30 seconds increased for every subsequent steeping. The leaves may be brewed for several times. However, infusion time and temperature can be adapted to suit your personal preference. A porcelain tea ware is recommended for Taiwanese White Tea.              

Cold Brew is also strongly recommended in the summertime.
