*NOTE: This item is IN STOCK and will ship within 2 business days!*
What is White Tea?
White tea is young tea that is harvested, sun-dried, and, in this minimally processed state, directly packaged.
White tea ages naturally, adding depth to flavor. These Gongmei White Tea balls are aged 3 years, deepening their natural flavor and scent.
Each box contains:
Gongmei White Tea Balls x10 (10 7-gram tea balls, ~2.5 oz)
White tea is light, very fragrant, and naturally sweet - it has great fragrance like a green tea, but more body, almost like a sweet oolong. Gongmei white tea includes both leaf and bud, so it has both fragrance and solid body as well.
Jesse's Teahouse started because Jesse realized the quality and value of the tea directly from the Beijing Tea Market was so much higher than what could be easily found in the States -- and around the world.
Jesse contacted his tea friends, they shipped their best teas to him, and he sends them to you. That's it!
These teas are high quality and can be re-steeped multiple times! Each serving makes between 4-8 cups of tea, so at around $.50 a cup, you get top quality Chinese teas at a price that you can enjoy every day.
NOT JUST TEA, TEA CULTURE
Jesse believes the key to making good tea is to help his Chinese tea friends share not just their best teas, but the best ways to make the teas.
That's why each box comes also comes with an info card that tells you:
- Tea Origin
- Steep Temperature
- Steep Time
- Directions for both teapot steeping and gaiwan steeping
All Jesse’s Teahouse Tea Friends (that’s you now!) also get access to private YouTube videos where Jesse and his Chinese tea friends show you how to make the teas and explain the tea-making process.
The links are on QR codes on the back of the info card included in the tea box.
Don't Forget Your Tea Pets!
