2020 'Electroflowercandy' White Tea Ball
Sunshine in your pocket.
Take a little slice of delight with you wherever you go; our mainstay Yunnan white tea is now available in a convenient single-session longzhu ('dragon ball') format. Each ball is roughly 7g of tea, perfect for a gongfu session, directly in a mug, or in a big pot.
This sun-dried white tea has ample staying power; numerous re-steeps or extended brewing and boiling are no problem. Highly fragrant, smooth, and with a thick mouthfeel; flowers and fruity flavours galore. The material is the same that's used for the full-sized white tea cake, and comes from excellent growing conditions; trees that aren't super young, lots of biodiversity, and no agricultural intervention.

Use boiling water (100C).
We recommend approx 1g of tea per 15ml of water for Gongfu-style brewing in a teapot or gaiwan. Rinse the leaves once and then brew several times until there is no flavour left.
For Western-style brewing in a larger teapot, use approx. 5g per 100ml of water. You can re-brew the leaves a few times.
To brew direct in a mug, use 1-2g of tea in the bottom of the cup, fill with boiling water, and drink once cool. Re-fill the cup with more water when you've drunk 1/3rd of the tea. Repeat until there is no more flavour left.
All of our teas are suitable for long-term storage and aging.
Keep your tea away from sunlight and strong smells, and somewhere with stable climate conditions.
You can keep it sealed inside the re-usable bag the tea comes in, or another non-porous container.
