Description: The fine leaves (fannings) produce a sweet cup with balanced flavor. We recommend a two minute infusion, but the tea is mellow and very forgiving, allowing a longer steeping. A great value for white tea, with a relatively dark liquor, characteristic of Shou Mei.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 180° Steep Time: 2+ min.

"This is a very clean tasting tea, but kind of characterless. I'm using it to blend with my black teas, both hot and iced, to enrich them with green tea polyphenols. Hard to overbrew. Unbeatable price for this purpose..."
