White tea is quickly gaining popularity in the Western world. Though it has long been praised in Asia, the rest of us are just beginning to get to know this delicate treat. And no other white tea is more delicious than white Persian melon tea. This rare blend of white tea is one that is pleasing to even the most discriminating palate.
The best white Persian melon tea should be made from the finest blend of loose white tea combined with high quality sweet melon nectar 茶葉批發香港. To ensure that you buy only the best quality white Persian melon tea, it’s important that you understand the most popular cultivars for white tea and the grades of white tea.
There is no international standard for grading tea, so beyond understanding these basic grades, it’s difficult to tell which tea is best. Unlike with black and green teas, white tea should have just one plucking each year, because the best tea is plucked during the spring. This is one of the reasons that white tea is so rare.
The most popular cultivars for white tea include Da Bai, Xiao Bai, Narcissus and Chaicha bushes. Within these cultivars the teas are classified into different grades, primarily based on whether the plucking consists of only the bud and top two leaves of the tea plant or whether more tea leaves are included.
In addition, the stringency with which the tea pluckers ensure that the leaves and buds are not damaged during harvest affects the quality and grade of the tea. Harvesting white tea properly is a difficult task. The best teas require the most skilled tea pluckers in order to keep the tea buds intact and undamaged.
Many people have loved the idea of hosting a tea tasting, but felt unsure as to how to go about doing so. Well, if you’d like to host a tea tasting for a few friends, it’s not all that difficult.
It’s true that tea masters in Asia spend years studying teas and tasting them. And, it’s certainly true that your sense of smell and palate will not be as trained as these masters to the many nuances in aroma and taste of the teas. However, you can enjoy tea tasting even if you’re not an expert.
Professional tea tasters have an array of special equipment, but for hosting your own tea tasting at home, you’ll do just fine with about three teapots, enough cups and spoons for you and your guests and a timer.
Most experts recommend that you have just one variety of tea at a tasting. Since the differences in the tastes of different types of can be so significant, it’s harder to sort out the nuances if you taste, for example, black, white and green teas in one tasting. For the purposes of this discussion, we’ll focus on a tasting of white teas, since these are the teas that are most likely newest to you and your friends.
Experts also recommend that you taste just three teas at one tasting, to allow you to really focus on the differences without becoming overwhelmed.
For a white tea tasting, it’s wise to choose one white tea that’s a “Silver Needles” variety, which is considered the best grade of white tea. Next, you might choose a “White Peony” variety; another fine white tea choice. Finally, select a flavored white tea. I recommend white licorice tea for your flavored variety. Taste the plain teas before the flavored tea.
