White Rose (China)


The sweet, honeysuckle taste of white tea is enhanced with the aroma of rose gardens.  Instead of a nearly clear mug of white tea, the rose petals impart a pinkish hue on the color.  The taste is an enchanting floral, sweet delicious escape to a secret rose garden.

White tea is made from just the top two leaves and the unopened bud of each plant.  Understand the rarity and preciousness of what you are drinking.  Tune out all outward distractions.  Inhale the sweet aroma that is warm with notes of fruit blossoms.  Watch the leaves and buds unfurling in the pot.  Sip it slowly.

Traditionally, white tea is steeped with 155-175 degree water, for 10 seconds.  That water is then discarded, and the tea is steeped again for anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes.
