A rare white tea from the Fujian province. Only the first plump white buds that emerge at the beginning of spring are plucked, along with two leaves. This is the least-processed of all the teas, being only sun-dried then lightly baked, creating a light, delicate flavour and aroma of white flowers with a fresh finish.

Enjoy:  Mid-afternoon-evening.

Brewing:  Pour water at 80-90 degrees (1/4 cold to 3/4 boiling) into a pot and add one heaped teaspoon of leaf per cup.  Infuse 3-4 mins.  Serve as is.

Ingredients:  White tea.
