The Perfect Brew: White Tea

White Tea gets it’s name from is beigey brew color, being an ultra light yellow or slight hint of green. White tea is the easiest tea to get used to because the flavor is not strong or polarizing.

It’s has a light natural sweetness, is slightly malty (a very faint taste of something like white beer, or water after you’ve boiled some pasta in it!) and if not over-brewed, it can have a delicate perfumey taste that’s nice and light. In comparing to green or black tea it’s not bitter or astringent at all nor is it strongly acidic.

Silver Needle white tea is made solely from the buds (top shoots) of the tea plant, the leaves are very delicate, and adding too hot of water, or boiling water, will scorch and damage the leaves as well as damaging the healthy properties of the leaves. Like green tea the result will be a dark yellow with a bitter astringent taste and you lose any nutritional benefits.

Pro Tip; White Tea blends well with other teas such as peppermint or lavender, brew with honey for a more soothing tea. A small amount of blueberry or other fruit flavors work well also, but don’t overwhelm your white tea with too many additional tastes.

  • White tea is best brewed at approximately 80 ºC (180 ºF).
  • For a pot of white tea start with approximately 5 tablespoons of tea.
  • Steeping time should be between 3-5 minutes to get the full flavor from your tea leaves.
  • Remove the tea leaves if the pot is sitting in order not to change the light flavor.
