Intriguing and sophisticated, this delicious tea is extremely moreish!
This tea has a very delicate flavour, not nearly as strong as I imagined, but has an amazing fragrance which I find very soothing. Lovely to have in the evening or before bed.
Excellent tea, rich flavours but light at the same time. So far my favourite tea
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
