mutan white


type: white

origin: china

region: fujian uji

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

An excellent introduction to white tea, it has an abundance of silvery white buds and green leaves. It is light and sweet with vegetal flavors. Dry Leaves: A mix of silver-green long tips (or buds) and forest green leaves. This tea is made after the harvest of the Chinese Silver Needle (aka YinZhen). The growers allow some leaves to mature and then they harvest. Like with Silver Needle, little is done other to allow the tea to dry inside a barn. Although the leaves look green, this is a white tea because of the production method. Liquor: Mutan White has a yellow green liquor, and is the darkest of all white teas because the leaves are attached to the white tip. Aroma: This tea has a light vegetal aroma glazed with sugar, like the sweet, charred quality of roasted leeks. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: In the realm of white teas, this tea has the most body. This is because of the leaves, although it is still much lighter than most other teas. Flavors: The finest (and that is what we offer) fill your mouth with the light sweet vegetal flavors of steamed yellow squash or leeks. Brewing Time: 2 to 3 minutes Brewing Temperature: 175° F
