Character

A slightly pale brew with a fresh aroma and a smooth velvety flavour.

Story

Known in the Fujian province of China as Pai Mu Tan this tea is quite rare due to the small window each year in which it can be harvested. Early each Spring morning, before the sun rises and the flowers open, the leaves and buds are plucked carefully and then allowed to dry naturally in the sun. Due to the maturity of the leaves and the gentle process of preparing this tea it contains a much higher level of antioxidants than green tea and a much lower level of caffeine.

Brew

1-2 tsp per cup in water at 80°c for 2-3 mins

Serve
