Golden Wheat Head
Golden Wheat Head Handcrafted Tea is woven into the shape of stalks or grains of wheat, a truly universal symbol of prosperity. This might seem odd for a nation famous for subsisting on rice, but the Chinese have longed enjoyed the making and consumption of bread, just like every other culture on the planet. The “grains” are little braided strands of green tea leaves! You’ll be delighted by the look and feel of these tiny threads as they fill your cup with a beautiful golden brew of green tea. Our Handcrafted Teas have a deep and delicate flavor, remarkably sweeter than most green teas, and the feel of the “wheat” flowing through your fingers is unforgettable!
Amount of water: 6 oz
Amount of Tea: 1 Flat teaspoon
Water Temperature: 160° F
Steeping Time: 1-3 minutes.
Note: Do not use boiling water for Green and White teas as they will burn and create bitter flavors.
A good way to guess water temperature without a thermometer is to bring the water to a boil, and wait about 30 seconds (for White tea) or 60 seconds (for Green tea) before pouring over the leaves.
