This is a pure white tea. It's a light, refreshing and slightly sweet tea and is produced from the hand picked bud and first two leaves of the tea plant. The Chinese name is Pai Mu Tan.

"Wonderfully smooth China white tea character, mellow with a delicate sweetness. Has a lingering finish, most enjoyable. A good example of its type.
Chinese White Tea. Contains caffeine.
2-3 mins Using cooled boiled water at approx. 80°C. Best to brew below boiling - a quick tip - put the boiling water into the mug or teapot first then add the tea - the cold mug will take the sting out of the boiling water.
One pyramid bag does a large mug perfectly and great for a teapot too of course...

How we like it...
A light alternative to green tea. Make with cooled boiling water to avoid it going bitter. I enjoy it as a early afternoon treat...
A really lovely fragrant tea. Well packaged and delivered on time.
