white pearls white tea


type: white

origin: china

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

Flowery pekoe white tea is comprised of 100% newly sprouted buds hand-rolled into small pearls that gently unfurl when infused. This tea has a mellow, delicate taste and brews to a pale golden cup with a slight sweetness. White tea is a very rare, expensive connoisseur's tea that is only produced in China, mainly Fukien (Fujian) province, famous for its prized white teas. It is difficult to obtain as production is extremely limited. It comes from a special strain of the tea plant and is harvested only a few days of the year. Once harvested, white tea is not oxidized or rolled, but simply withered and dried by steaming. Tip: Place 25 to 30 small pearls in a glass cup and add 8 ounces of freshly boiled water. Infuse for 4 minutes and watch the pearls gently unfurl.
