Pai Mu Tan is an elegant white tea produced from buds and leaves picked early in spring, just before they open. The leaves are from a special variety of bush called Narcissus, or Chicha bushes. What makes this tea so special is that the leaves are not fermented or rolled, but instead are naturally dried. Only the first two leaves and the bud are picked, which have the highest concentration of antioxidants, which is what makes white tea the healthiest of all teas.

Recent studies have shown that in addition to the anti-cancer properties of white tea, it also has a calming and detoxifying effect on the skin. White tea has almost three times as many antioxidant polyphenols as green or black tea. It has also shown to be 100 times more effective in cleaning up free radicals that cause skin to sag. With anti-cancer properties, and anti wrinkle properties, the velvety smooth taste is a bonus to this extraordinary tea.

Brewing White Tea

Brewing White tea is almost the same as brewing Green Tea. The most important thing to remember is: do not boil your water. Boiling your water when brewing white or green tea will cook the leaves, releasing the bitter tannins in greater quantity and ruining the delicate taste of the tea. The difference between brewing white and green tea is that white tea, because it is a large leaf, should be measured with a tablespoon rather than a teaspoon.

White tea is somewhat a contradiction, despite being a more delicate tea, it also stands up better to longer brewing times. We recommend when brewing white tea that you start at 1 minute, however, if you left it for 5-7 minutes as other companies recommend, you can also get a good cup of tea.

The advantage to brewing white tea for shorter periods of time are twofold. First, you get more infusions out of the leaf if you start with a shorter brewing time. Second, each infusion that you make from the leaves has it's own complexity and flavors. Some teas get better the more times you infuse them, and white teas in general fall under that generalization.

In Short:
  1. Place 1 tablespoon of white tea in a cup or infuser.
  2. Heat your water to between 80° and 90° Celsius (just below boiling, also called 'rumbling')
  3. Pour your heated water into your cup/infusing device and steep the tea for between 1 and 2 minutes for the first steeping.
  4. Enjoy your cup of healthy white tea.
  5. You can re-steep your white tea multiple times, add between 30 and 60 seconds per steep, depending on your own preferences.
As with all of our teas, this is only a guideline, and you should experiment to find out what you prefer!
