The most delicate Chinese teas are White teas. The tea leaves are oxidized only about 5% and have very little caffeine.
The leaves are fluffy and light. You can see the full buds with downy hairs. It is very important to use enough leaves to make a good cup of tea. For one cup of tea put 2 teaspoons of White tea. Water should be 170 F, steeping time 90 seconds to 2 minutes. You can do up to three re-infusions, using hotter water and increasing steeping time each time. The liquor is light, sweet, fresh and vegetal. Very gentle and tender tea without aftertaste. This tea will give you very subtle uplift.
