Organic White Tea (Camellia sinensis) Contains Caffeine
Celebrated for centuries in the Orient, tea has shaped our world from the times of Chinese emperors and European explorers.
White Tea comes from the same source as Green, Oolong, and Black Tea: the tea bush known to botanists as Camellia sinensis.
White Tea is distinguished from other teas by the place it comes from and the way it is processed. This White Tea comes from the Fujian province of China. Normally, Green, Oolong, and Black teas are rolled or broken prior to or during the drying process so that the essential oils can oxidize; this is a process known as fermentation. White Teas are not oxidized at all, but are simply left to dry naturally, then roasted to seal in all the flavours.
• Good water is an essential part of brewing a great cup of tea. We recommend using spring or filtered water.
• Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
• If you desire a medicinal tea: This herb has a tough cellular structure and some heat is required to release all of it’s medicinal properties and flavour. Use one tea bag per cup of hot water in a stainless steel or glass pot, cover, boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. This is known as the decoction method. Extra tea can be kept in a covered glass jar for a day or two in the refrigerator.
• If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew, use one teabag per cup of hot water. Pour boiling water over teabags, cover, and let steep 5 to 7 minutes to taste. Enjoy!
