  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

Bai Mu Tan or White Peony is a white tea made up of 3 leaves - two top leaves & a downy bud. The down bud is easy to identify in the mix.  It is grayish and is short and thin compared to the larger open green or brown tea leaves which are mature leaves. 

The mix often has stems in the mix and this is normal.  Some of the stems or midribs are actually the center part of the mature leaf. In processing and transporting the tea, the fragile leaves sometimes break leaving a the midrib as part of the mix.

Smooth & flowery with a hint of earthiness.  from Fujian Province.
