A Chinese tea made with leaves that are processed to let them wilt slightly and lose the ""grassy"" taste of green tea, while undergoing minimal oxidation. White tea has higher levels of antioxidants, less caffeine, and has more anti-viral, anti-bacterial qualities than green tea. It also has more of amino acid theanine than green and black teas, which is believed to have relaxing and mood enhancing properties*. We invite you to live a vibrant and healthy life!
INGREDIENTS: Organic White tea leaves.
BREWING Instructions: Bring the water to a boil in a stainless steel tea kettle or pot, and then allow the water to cool for about three minutes. Allowing the water to cool slightly will bring the temperature down for optimal brewing. Add the tea leaves to the water in the teapot (about 1tsp. per 8-12oz.) and steep for approximately two minutes. It is important that you only brew the amount of tea you with to drink and then empty the leaves from the tea pot. This will stop the leaves from steeping, allowing you to use them again.
