Another Alana/Secret Santa gift – thank you! The dry leaf is composed of long, light green leaves, and carries a light cherry bouquet. Not as fuzzy as some white tea leaves I’ve seen, but still very delicate looking. At three minutes I’ve got a light golden brown liquor with a mild cherry aroma. The taste is cherry, but this first try is reminding me a little of cherry cough drops more than the fruit. I may need to play around with this one a bit to see if I can bring that out more.
Inspired by the Japanese Festival of Cherry Blossoms, this tea typifies the excitement of spring’s arrival. Made from the youngest tender leaves, our blend combines the delicate white tea with the flavour of cherries.
Whatever the weather, sip a cup of this fragrant tea and celebrate the changing seasons.
Use fresh water. Water left in the kettle loses vitality and makes tea taste dull
Rinse the pot with boiling water to bring out the tea’s flavour
Add 1-2 teaspoon of tea to a 6-cup pot
Pour in water that is just off-the-boil
Let sit for 2-3 minutes. This delicate tea should be brewed lightly.
Strain and pour. Drink this tea without milk
