Recently I received some tea samples from Teavivre for review purpose. From the different types of Tea, I thought of trying a White Tea sample first.
Teavivre Organic Silver Needle White Tea (Bai hao Yin Zhen) is the highest grade of White Tea.It is originated from Fuding,Fujian China. This White Tea consists only of the top unopened tea leaf buds. The bud is covered of fine white hairs. Therefore it looks like a white needle.
Some Health Benefits of White Tea are,
-Highest level of antioxidants of all teas
-Highest level of vitamins and minerals
-balances cholesterol by lowering bad cholesterol and raising good
-reduce the incidence of some forms of cancer
-Improve skin complexion
How to brew White Tea
Heat water to the boiling point, and then allow it cool.
Do not steep white tea in boiling water. The best temperature is176° F or 80°C for brewing white tea.
Many antioxidants can be destroyed at temperatures that close to the boiling point and the tea will lose some of its best qualities.
Meanwhile prepare Your Tea Set
Pour hot water into Tea pot & cups to Warm and Cleanse.
Put white tea into Teapot or cup.
Pour Water into Tea pot to brew white tea
Wait 1-3 mins.
White Tea is ready to serve.
As Teavivre says,I found that this Organic Silver Needle White Tea sample doesn’t contain any opened leaves. All the buds are unopened. Once brewed, it gave a pale golden colour. The taste is light, without any bitterness or strong flavour. There was a light flowery fragrance. I liked the taste as it is not very strong as of Black tea.
