White Tea Nepal

This is one of our freshest tea plucked and manufactured in September of last year, the last harvest for the 2019 season. Not only being an autumn tea, but also the method by which this tea was prepared by the Nepalese tea masters gives it unique properties relative to summer or spring harvests, for example.

 

For the production of this specific white tea, the tea tips and adjacent leaves are plucked and withered by a special method in order to give the tea a unique taste distinguished from classical white teas. Finally, the leaves are dried to preserve their structure and retain all their constituents for a fresh and healthy cup of tea. This white tea has a pale yellow infusion and we identify floral honey roasted and nutty notes, with a saturated and thick taste. This makes it very suitable for entering the world of caffeine white teas to give you flavourful experience and sharpening the senses to capture the subtle notes in the profile of tea.

There is no one recipe to prepare a perfect cup of tea. 

 

Here is one way we love to prepare our cup of White Tea Nepal, and we encourage you to experiment and discover: 

 

   250-350 ml

 

It is best to use your favourite cup of tea as a measure of volume against which to estimate the amount of leaves needed. 

 

   5-7 g

 

Generally, this means a teaspoon with a tip or at least twice the amount of the standard teaspoon is about 2 grams, which is recommended for the preparation of a cup of tea according to the western model of preparation using a single, longer infusion. For example, 2 g of tea per cup about 250 ml for a single infusion of 3 minutes. In the Eastern model, we should use at least 4 g of leaves for successive, short infusions.

 

   80 ℃

 

If you do not have a thermometer, stop heating the water when the first bubbles begin to separate from the bottom of the vessel at the very beginning of the active boiling process.

 

    wash the tea leaves

 

It is very important to "wash" the tea leaves for about 10-15 seconds before our first real brew. We use the heated (80 ℃) water for the first infusion, make a very short brew for about 10 seconds, and throw away the liquid from this so-called wash.

 

   first infusion 20 seconds

 

The first infusion of the Eastern model of short and successive infusions is ... really short: about 20 seconds for this White Tea Nepal. It is important to drain the leaves well while we wait for the next infusion so that the ingredients do not continue to extract from the leaves in the meantime.

 

   +15-20 seconds for every consecutive infusion, МАХ 4-6 infusions

 

For each subsequent infusion we add 15-20 seconds to the original 20 seconds. For example, the second infusion should be 35 seconds, the third infusion 50 seconds and so on ... You can make up to 4-6 infusions with the same leaves and finally make cold/ice tea with them.

 

  use the full potential of the tea leaves and make yourself a some cold/ice tea

 

Not everyone can, nor should drink 4 to 6 cups of white tea, 250 ml each. For example, if, after the third brew, you decide you don't want to drink more tea today and have no one to share it with, then add the leaves you used up until now in a cold water glass jar and refrigerate for 6 to 12 hours. Enjoy a different side of the White Tea Nepal ; )

 

 Еxperiment boldly and discover the secret to your perfect cup of tea!
