White Chai Tea
White Chai tea comes from young or minimally processed leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant - the silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the plant. White tea once brewed is not actually white or colorless but instead has a pale yellow color. The flavor of white tea can be described as silky and sweet, and is very mild compared to a black, and will not have the grassy flavor often experienced with a green tea.
We have blended the complex notes of lemongrass and fruit with white tea in our White Chai Spice. The chai-spiced finish with a kick of peppercorn lingers in the sweetness of the fruit. A light-bodied, but zesty cup
Does white chai tea have caffeine?
Any tea that comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant contains caffeine. However, a blended white tea, such as this white tea which is blended with apple and pineapple pieces, cloves, dried coconut, cardamom, and red peppercorn, contains a low level of caffeine compared to that of an unblended white tea.
Using fully boiling water to brew white tea or brewing white tea for more than five minutes will increase the level of caffeine in your cup. We recommend using water that's 190 degrees Fahrenheit or lower and brew for three to four minutes, five minutes at most.
Another tip if you are concerned with caffeine levels is to re-brew the same leaves a second time. The flavor will be a little less intense with a second infusion, but the caffeine level is reduced.
Steep at 190° for 3-4 minutes.
