Identify the Taste & Colour of an Authentic Class
Taste on the palate
As a beverage, White Tea is exceptionally mellow, soft and pleasant at the palate.
The Bai Mudan gives a light-coloured liquor in either apple green or hued yellow. The taste is clear, syrupy and thirst-quenching in sensation; characterized by sweet corn & mellow floral-fruity notes. It is possible to find hints of fresh legume, leading towards vegetal notes for an over-steeped Tea. Another popular name of Bai Mudan is White Peony Tea. So they are two different names for the same class of Tea.
You will find rich mineral notes with subdued aromas and flavours that suggest forest honey, chestnuts, toast & apricots in the Silver Needle. There is a pleasant note of cocoa butter with brown sugar, (can we term that as caramel?) throughout the cup. The liquor colour is orange to amber and thick.
Liquor Colour in eyesight
In each case, the liquor colour is a reflection of the unique processing of the fresh buds or leaf plant material. It also depends on the quantities of tea leaves and infusion time. Nevertheless, when brewed properly, both the Tea will leave you refreshed, satisfied in their own way leaving a desire for a repeat.
To help you make an informed purchase, we are sharing below representative images from our library for both Silver Needle (Assam White Tea) and Baimudan or White Peony Tea (Darjeeling White Tea) side by side. We hope it will work as a referential guide for you to see the difference in the physical appearance of Tea leaves for both types.
Plucking Season of Silver Needle White Tea & Bai Mudan White Tea
White Tea is only harvested for a few weeks each spring across globally. The plucking month can vary depending upon the geographical location, but it will be limited from early spring to late in pursuit of true flavour. Spring harvested Tea is also expensive as they are the first Tea the plant gives after winter dormancy. These Tea Buds are selected from the prime growing areas of the tea plant and are full of various Tea Polyphenols ( Tea Plant Antioxidants).
For your note, often High-Grade White Tea comes from special cultivars( Tea Plants). So plant selection matters as all tea plants will not give the same quality of Tea. Apart from these, there are also other pre-conditions that exist prior to the decision for the making of this Tea- for example rain, hailstorms, mist, time of the day. The objective is to get the best Tea buds. They must be flawless not only at the time of plucking but also throughout the subsequent Tea making steps. In short, the making of this unique Tea is a delicate matter of Science & Art.
The Making of this Unique Tea
There is little consensus on a single definition of White Tea. However, fundamental is the Tea is the least processed among all teas. From Plucking to the final readiness, this Tea requires extreme care and attention to preserve its uniqueness. Depending on the weather and regions, wherever possible, makers use natural ventilation and bake drying. The simple yet attentive natural drying and subsequent steps result in light and fluffy Teas
In pursuit of a perfect cup
The delicacy of white Tea will turn harsh when we use extremely hot water or we over steep the Tea. Because of the light, fluffy nature, be mindful of the tea quantity as well. Compared to other teas, the quantity may initially appear more, however, it can be required to develop the recognisable flavour. White Tea is a good candidate for multiple infusions. You can steep at least twice our Bai Mudan and Silver Needle White Tea.
For beginners, the following temperature should work to start with considering a cup volume of 220 ml. You can scale up directly to meet requirements for bigger cup size, an individual mug, or a tea port as soon as you adjust your taste and make yourself familiar with it.
Measurement | Steeping Time
3 gm of White Tea for 220 ml of water | Steeping Time 1 Minute to 3 Minutes
Water Temperature | No of Steep
160-170 Degree Farenhite | 80-85 Degree Celcius | 1 to 2 consecutive steeps
Traditionally, White Tea contains lesser caffeine than other tea types. However, some recent studies have pointed to the possibility of having caffeine higher than initially assumed. Even so, as the Tea typically is steeped for a shorter amount of time than other teas, the caffeine content in each brew tends to be significantly less. It finally reinforces the original estimate that the final cup of White Tea is less caffeinated.
White Tea is the healthiest of all teas, as it contains antioxidants concentrated in the bud that helps strengthen the immune system. All over the globe, people drink it to promote longevity and youthfulness.
