White teas consist of only the rare, delicate buds of the tea plant or just the bud and the first two leaves. They offer a soft, subtle flavor profile that is often quite complex and naturally sweet due to the high concentration of nutrients, particularly glucose, often present in the bud.
White tea differs from various other types of tea in that it is less processed. It comes from the same Camellia Sinensis plant as all other tea; however, the leaves are not manipulated to encourage oxidation (as with oolongs and black teas), nor are they heated to prevent oxidation (as with green teas). White tea is simply withered to remove the moisture from the leaves and then dried to remove any remaining humidity not eliminated during the withering process. Loose leaf white tea represents tea in its most natural, unaltered state.
There are two main varieties of the tea plant used in the cultivation of tea: Camellia Sinensis Sinensis and Camellia Sinensis Assamica. White Grape is made using the Camellia Sinensis Sinensis varietal which is native to China. It has smaller leaves, but is heartier and more resistant to cold and drought than the Assamica varietal.
Try serving White Grape with dried fruit or Mediterranean food.
We recommend steeping White Grape for 1-2 minutes at 175°.
