Granite Ground White Tea
Powdered tea was the way tea was consumed back in 11th century china during the song dynasty. we are taking the first step in north america to re-introduce this innovative way of drinking tea. we use a granite grinding wheel to grind the fujian white tea down slowly into an ultra soft powder which holds 10 to 15 times the nutrients of a steeped white tea. taste is smooth and grassy.
Whisk 2 bamboo tea scoops (1/2 tsp) of white tea with 60 ml (2 oz) of hot water (80°C/176ºF) using a bamboo whisk. proportions may be adjusted to taste.
100% fujian white tea.
our granite ground white tea contains a high amount of antioxidants and, initial research suggests that it can act as a powerful scavenger of free radicals and may help fight and kill cancer causing cells (www.pubmed.com). this tea is very high in antioxidants, higher than its green tea equivalent. it has 10 to 15 times the nutrients of steeped white tea.
our blend of granite ground white tea is grown in the fujian region of china, the best region for growing white tea and then ground down into a fine powder in japan. after the tea leaves are handpicked, but prior to grinding them down, they are flown to germany, home to the world’s most exacting standards in tea inspection. there, each tea leaf is thoroughly inspected for herbicides, pesticides and other chemical residue. and if it doesn’t pass the test, it doesn’t get passed on to you.
granite ground white tea is packaged in airtight, opaque tin containers to ensure freshness and quality. the screw top with rubber stopper ensures that after you open and close your tea container, the integrity of the tea is retained for every cup.
