2017 'Ghost' White Tea

Regular price $49.00

GHOST is a white tea from Xishuangbanna.

This tea was made by simply drying the leaves in the mountain sun. Compared to many white teas, the tea has a thick, strong flavour of flowers and honey, with a bit less fragrance than typical Fujian whites. All-round soft and delightful. Best enjoyed whilst soaking up some sunshine.

We strongly recommended steeping this tea a variety of ways including gongfu style, boiling, or in a mug or thermos. Steeped gongfu style, this tea can easily yield 15+ infusions, with more sweetness coming out with longer steeps.  

This tea is suitable for ageing, and will develop further in flavour and complexity over the years. 

The tea was pressed in November 2017, using material from spring 2017.

 

Each cake is 200g 

 

How do I brew my tea? 

Brew this tea using boiling water. 

Kuura have put together a simple guide for brewing their tea here.

Tea is very easy to make, and can be made in a variety of different ways and still taste good.

Another simple way is to simply put a small amount of tea leaves in a large mug of hot water. Let it cool, then sip away. Top it back up with hot water and repeat until there is no flavour left.
