White Mischief Loose Leaf White Tea
White Mischief Loose Leaf White Tea from Fujian Province is naturally withered and sun-dried. This white tea is blended with juicy guava and tart pomegranate for a mischievous mix.
This tea will most certainly play mischief with your taste buds, sharpen your senses and enchant you with the complex but subtle flavors of pomegranate and guava. We wrote a tea blog post about white teas in general and specifically this tea.
From an area called Fu-ding in the mist-covered mountains of Fujian Province, this Pai mu tan white tea is made from the immature leaves of the tea bush picked shortly before opening. Silver fuzz covers the bud and turns white when the tea is lightly withered.
Until recently, white tea was largely unknown outside China, but its popularity is exploding and with good reason. Also known to promote healthy and radiant skin, you must have our white tea in your pantry! The pale, sweet, silky flavor of a tea left so close to its natural state means more antioxidants to combat disease, fight viruses, and boost your immune system.
Drinking tea is a ritual for the Chinese, and it should be for you. Set aside some time, relax and spend quiet moments with this beautiful, stress-relieving tea.
20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea.
