How to steep white teas
White teas are very delicate, a bad steep can become bitter or flavorless. Worse, as white teas are the most expensive type of tea - a bad cup is a waste of money!
When steeping white teas - use more tea. White tea tends to be unrolled leaves, making it much larger when dry. So use more tea for each cup than you would a black or green tea.
White teas are very delicate - and can burn/ become bitter easily. It is best to steep them at a lower temperature. I usually use 175F.
Steep time - if your temperature is low, steep time is a bit more flexible. Try steeping the tea for a minute, then take a small sip. If it is not flavorful enough let it steep for 15 second intervals.
This is the recipe for getting the best flavor out of your white teas!
