The Chinese Mutan white tea is unusual, comprised of silvery, downy buds and green leaves. The buds are hand picked before the leaf opens, then gently steamed. The brew is delicate and mellow, with a light pale color. Due to the larger leaf size, more leaves per cup are needed when brewing.
Brewing Tips: The China Mutan white tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to cool for 1.5 to 2 minutes (175° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. It should be steeped for 2-3 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
