Cherry rose white tea with smooth and sweet flavours
This Cherry rose white tea will take you on a journey of smooth and sweet flavours. This tea uses all-natural cherry essence and rose water and contains no artificial colours or flavours. With a quality white tea as the base for this flavoured tea, this is a very refreshing and crisp tea to brew hot or iced.
What exactly is a white tea?
White tea is made from the same plant as green tea, black tea, or oolong. But the difference is that it’s made from new growth leaves or buds. The leaves are steamed or pan roaster to inactivate oxidation. They are then dried. For this reason white tea retains high amounts of cathecins (antioxidants) which are present in fresh tea leaves. These tea leaves are from a Pai Mu Tan tea leaf variety. And they don’t just taste great, but they’re also good for you.
How much caffeine is in white tea?
This type of tea contains bewteen 35 and 55 mg. of caffeine per 8 ounce brewed cup. This is around half that of black tea, in comparison.
How do I brew the Cherry Rose tea?
This Cherry Rose tea is best brewed at around 180F, or 80C. Since it is a delicate tea like green tea, boiling water can scorch the tea leafs, leading to over extraction of tannins. This would result in bitter tea, as the tannins overpower the natural and gentle flavours of the tea. That is why we recommend water at 3 minutes off boil for white teas. Brew time is usually 3-5 minutes for these tea leaves. These tea leaves are from a Pai Mu Tan tea leaf variety.
What kind of tea infuser or teapot is best for white tea?
Since this is a full leaf tea, but also has some broken leaf pieces due to the delicate nature of this tea leaf, it is best brewed in a fine loose tea infuser. Any of the GROSCHE glass teapots would work well, as well as infuser tea mugs like Aspen or Kassel would be excellent. You can also brew this loose leaf tea in a tea press such as the Madrid Tea Press very easily.
