Memories of fresh picked blueberries make this a fruity but light cup of tea.
Luxury White tea, Blueberries
Wow, people love blueberries!! These days in our world of chocolate bars and junk food, while blueberries aren't likely to create a stampede of hungry children, they are still one of the best-loved fruits around. And for good reason too. The tiny blue friut is marvelously sweet, and incredibly good for you. In fact, in addition to being chock full of antioxidants, a recent Japanese study showed that blueberries may even give carrots a run for their money in the eye department due to a compound called anthocyanin in the fruit's blue pigment. We've taken this beloved fruit and used it to create something as delicious and healthy as the berry itself. Blending the goodness of fresh blueberries with a white Pai Mu Tan from Fujian, this tea heralds sweet lusious notes of berry floating over the jammy character of the base tea- absolutely glorious!
FOR HOT TEA:
Use water that is about 180 degrees. Put 1 teaspoon in your strainer or infuser. Let the tea steep for about 3min and begin enjoying a cup of enchantment. *do not remove the leaves from the cup. When the water gets low, add more and continue to enjoy!
FOR COLD TEA:
Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.]
