White Tea

The Perfect Steep

With white tea it is important to never use boiling water.  Boiling water can ruin the delicate flavor of white tea. The ideal water temperature for white tea is between 170 – 185 degrees Fahrenheit. For best results, bring the water to a rolling boil and let it sit for up to one minute, then pour the water over the leaves. 

Specific times can vary depending on the brand of white tea you are using. However, 5 to 8 minutes for the first steeping is generally recommended, with another 2 to 3 minutes for each additional cup. Purveyors of specialty brands such as Silver Needles frequently recommend steeping the tea for up to 15 minutes.
