Juicy cherries, sweet almond and luxurious white tea - this is a delicious combo! 😋

This great taste award-winning blend was inspired by the classic cherry & almond tea time treat! 🍒 If you aren't enjoying this brew with a big slice of cake you aren't doing it right! 
 

☕️ WHAT IS WHITE TEA!? ☕️

You’ve probably heard people talking about the wonder that is white tea and all of the fantastic properties it possesses! So, let’s delve a bit deeper into the question: what exactly is White tea? 🤔

☕️

Where does white tea come from? 

Believe it or not, white Tea comes from exactly the same plant as green tea, black tea, oolong and even matcha! The tea plant, known as Camellia Sinensis is a flowering shrub, grown in lots of countries all over the world - the leaves of the plant are harvested and processed in different ways to produce different types of tea.

White teas are very young leaves and buds from the tea plant - they are handpicked during Springtime and are almost completely unprocessed. The leaves are simply picked and dried.

☕️

How is white tea made? 

By drying the leaves without any further processing, white tea is able to retain molecules known as polyphenols, which act as antioxidants in the body. Polyphenols are found in lots of foods and drinks and have been thought to help with areas such as digestion and skincare!

☕️

Does white tea contain caffeine?

Tea from the tea plant always naturally contains caffeine (caffeine is actually a natural pesticide to stop pesky insects from eating the wonderful tea leaves!) however, white tea, on average, only contains around 13mg of caffeine per cup. That’s only just over half of the caffeine in a normal cup of green tea and a little more than a quarter of a cup of black tea! As such, White tea makes a wonderful afternoon brew and is great for those looking to reduce their caffeine intake.unprocessed. The leaves are simply picked and dried.

☕️

What does white tea taste like? 

We certainly can’t forget that as well as being great for you, White tea also has a delicious and unique taste! Flavour-wise, white tea is usually very light and delicate with sweetly floral notes. As Tea Mixologists, we always ensure that our White teas are blended with ingredients that are going to complement this incredible flavour!

☕️

What other white teas do you have? 

We have a small but mighty range of white teas here at Bird & Blend! Our best-seller being Nearly Nirvana - a heavenly blend of Silver Needle White tea (Silver Needles are little fuzzy buds from the tea plant that haven’t even opened up yet!) with jasmine, refreshing spearmint and orange blossom, for the most relaxing, post-meditation cuppa.

☕️

When you’re in the mood for a dessert but don’t fancy baking a cake, why not reach for a cup of delectable Cherry Bakewell? Sweet cranberry, zingy cherry and smooth almond make for a proper treat, without even having to switch the oven on! You can even cold brew your Cherry Bakewell - steep it overnight in water, or use coconut milk for a creamy delight! 

☕️

 ❤️️ Happy brewing! ❤️️
