From Westholme Tea Company

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.

Description: Each morning, heavy clouds envelope the mountain peaks surrounding Westholme, quenching the slopes and trickling down to our valley and our tea plants. These mists of rain, and the gentle light that glows through the overcast sky, is what White Mist is named for – these are the ideal growing conditions for the young, tender leaves and buds of our exquisite white tea.

After being harvested by hand and gently laid out to air dry, the tea begins its gentle oxidation. As there is little processing involved with white tea types, the structure of the leaves and bud are maintained – as you steep this tea, watch them unfurl in the hot water.

Tasting Notes: The flavour is graceful and rich; the deep complexity of honey with hints of citrus and fresh leaves. The liqueur, though light, truly captures the deep essence of our Westholme terroir.

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

A coworker recently spent some months in BC and ended up visiting Westholme while she was out there – she brought back a couple of the teas for us to try, which was incredibly sweet and thoughtful of her. I’ve had Westholme’s Canadian grown tea before – but only in blends and never straight, so this was really interesting for me!

This white tea is very pretty looking with larger leaves and a beautiful spread of colours among the leaves. It tasted really good but also quite strange for a white tea – not the flavours I ever would have ever expected to taste from this leaf style. Very, very nutty with hints of darker honey and milk chocolate. I had to double take because I was sure that I was looking at the wrong leaf for what we’d brewed up.

If this tea weren’t so freaking expensive, I would totally buy more. It’s unique and tasty!
