White Mist - Spring Harvest 2020

Regular price $35.00

Style: White

Origin: Westholme BC, Canada

Availability: This tea is usually plucked from the tender first flush of our tea bushes in early Spring. Due to the limited harvesting time, this tea is quite rare. Please Pre-order to guarantee that you will receive this limited harvest terroir tea in late May, while supplies last. Orders will be shipped in sequence once the tea has been made.

Description: Heavy mists often immerse the tea garden slopes in a nourishing veil of moisture and gentle light. The fine bud and first two leaves are hand harvested and gently laid out to air dry, maintaining consistency and structure of the leaf. White Mist is our most minimally processed tea, thus creating a graceful and richly flavoured white tea that truly captures the essence of our Westholme tea farm terroir. Watch the leaves unfold and expand as they steep.

Tasting Notes: This is a graceful yet full flavoured white tea that truly captures the unique terroir of the farm.

Brewing Instructions: Use 80ºC - 90ºC water (below boil) and pour over the loose leaves. 2.5g per cup of water. Steep for 3-5 minutes. We invite you to enjoy several steeps.

The tradition of tea is closely tied to place – the region, the mountain, the slope. In 2010 we began planting our own tea to take advantage of the unique terroir of our home. This is the very first Canadian estate-grown tea – an authentic expression of the land, soil, and climate of our farm.
Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
