From Forbidden Fruit Orchards

It is called green tea on the label, but the company web site describes it as sun dried, and after my first infusion, I’m convinced this one is truly a white tea:
Forbidden Fruit Orchards Tea
Our tea, Camellia sinensis, is grown on our property, hand picked, sun dried and processed to release the enzymes and fragrance. We package 4 tea bags in each pouch with a few dried organic blueberries.

This is a quite splendid delicate and floral white tea, with a hint of blueberry tartness. I am not typically a fan of flavored teas, but this one was quite impressive.

We used cups holding about 5-6 oz of water, water at 160 degrees, and one teabag per cup, steeping about 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 or 4 minutes, and one last one might have been closer to 10 minutes.

I was expecting an interesting novelty: locally grown! from California! but was quite impressed by this neat little tea. Per the web site, it’s quite pricey (I got this packet as a gift), but worth a try if you live near enough to find some.
