Origins of White Tea

Unlike green tea, the origin of white tea is "fairly recent." Only in the 10th century N.C. tea came in vogue among the Song Dynasty in China. Since recent years, tea has become popular outside China.

Production of White Tea

White tea is made from the youngest buds of the Camellia Sinensis (tea plant). These buds are picked within 48 hours after they are formed. After this they are wilted and dried in the sun. This process is carried out only once a year. Hence, white tea is relatively expensive. The production of white tea takes place mainly in the Chinese province of Fujian.

Brewing tips for White tea

Like green tea, white tea can't cope well with too hot water. Too hot water can burn the tea leaves.

Water needs to be between 70 ºC - 80 ºC (158 °F - 176 °F) before it is poured over the tea leaves. For a number of white teas, the set temperature of the water is even lower. Please note the data sheet of the corresponding white tea!

The average brewing time for white tea is between 1 and 3 minutes.
