How to Make White Tea

The simple art of making white tea can be broken down into four easy details. While the process is simple, it is also important to remember that it takes extra care and attention to make sure white tea never turns bitter.

What You Will Need

  • White tea Leaves – White tea can be purchased in most large grocery stores or other specialty shops. To make sure the tea is fresh, keep an eye out for an expiration date.
  • Boiling Water – Always make sure water has come to a full boil before adding in the white tea leaves. Some people choose to boil the water twice for extra flavor.

Making the Tea

  • Once the water comes to a full boil, turn off the heat and add the exact number of white tea leaves recommended on the package.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and steep the tea leaves for 4-5 minutes. White tea typically cannot steep for too long, or else it will taste bitter.
  • Once the tea leaves have steeped for 4-5 minutes, remove the lid and strain the tea leaves with a strainer or tea bag.
  • Serve the tea as is, or add a few ingredients of your choice. Honey, as well as a few mint leaves, will add some extra flavor and make the tea look more attractive.

Final Note

When it comes to making white tea, always practice restraint when it comes to the number of tea leaves used. Adding too many leaves will make the tea taste too strong, and adding too many ingredients can easily overshadow the natural light flavor of the tea.
