MORE ABOUT  

THIS TEA

tea origin

Shou Mei white tea comes from Fuding in the Chinese Fujian province, the cradle of white tea. It shares some similarities with two other similar teas – White Peony and Gong Mei. Although the first white tea appeared around 1000 years ago, modern styles were developed much later. Today, shou mei is one of the four most important Fujian white teas.

ingredients insights:

Simple Blueberry White is crafted with shou mei white tea leaves and sprinkled with freeze-dried blueberries and blue cornflowers. 

 

White tea is the most unprocessed type of tea. After harvesting, tea leaves are withered and dried. However, although it’s called unoxidized, some oxidation is still allowed. Shou Mei is a great example of a lightly oxidized white tea, evident from the darker brownish color of leaves. Shou Mei has less buds and darker leaves than White Peony, which is greener in both appearance and flavor.

 This delicate white tea is best pure or lightly flavored. Freeze-dried blueberries are not only rich in nutrients, but add a refreshing, slightly tart but gentle flavor note to this unique tea.

Simple Blueberry White Tea FAQS

White tea is the minimally processed type of tea. Leaves are only withered outdoors, dried indoors and then sorted. Although the production process sounds very simple, it takes a lot of knowledge to make a high quality tea in only a few steps. This tea is rich in antioxidants, can have both low and high caffeine content and is usually very light in flavor. You can brew white teas using very hot water and re-steep the same leaves for at least 3-5 times.
