How is white tea prepared?

To prepare a white tea, we recommend brewing in water heated to 176°F for 4-8 minutes.

Particular care needs to be taken when preparing a white tea. If brewed incorrectly, they can seem rather bland, but, unlike green tea, they can be brewed for longer periods without developing excessive bitterness or astringency. It can be interesting to experiment with different preparation methods and a white tea can be brewed for a long time (4-8 minutes for plain teas, 4-6 minutes for flavoured tea) at moderate temperatures (176°F) or for a short time (10 seconds) repeatedly, gradually extending the brewing time with each sequence. White tea also makes an excellent iced tea and can be brewed hot, then cooled and served over ice.
