White tea is the first--and immature--harvest of the Camellia sinesis plant.  The top leaves and bud are plucked at first sight when they are still fresh and silvery from an early bloom.  These delicate leaves are air-dried to preserve the sweet, subtle flavor that characterizes fragrant white teas.


Brewing Directions:  White tea is brewed lower temperatures, at around 180 degrees F.  If you don't have a thermometer, let freshly boiled water sit for a couple of minutes before steeping the teabag.  Most white teas can be steeped multiple times.  Allow the tea to steep 2 minutes for the first brewing and an additional minute for every brew after.
