Fuzzy Navel White Tea
juicy peach flavor with hints of orange in a delicate white tea blend
Fuzzy Navel White Tea combines the essence of Georgia peaches and juicy navel oranges with soft white tea for the ideal beach or poolside refreshment. This gorgeous blend brings together Silver Needle white tea leaves, succulent peaches, exotic mango with an unexpected sprinkling of rooibos and hibiscus. This tea is a burst of sunshine in the cup.
Silver needle white tea is smooth, light and fresh. The cup is slightly sweet without much, if any, astringency and delicate notes of orange making it the perfect accompaniment for our Fuzzy Navel.
The overall cup has a floral, honey-like aroma, is golden in hue and has a fruity, clean finish.
As a white tea, Fuzzy Navel contains low levels of caffeine.
Because they are minimally processed, white teas contain very high levels of antioxidants. White tea is highly valued for its greater polyphenol content than other types of tea. In addition, research has shown that white tea may have anti-inflammatory properties and help the body fight against type 2 diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.
Rooibos provides antioxidant benefits and studies show that regular consumption may help fight cancer, protect against heart disease and may positively affect blood sugar.
Hibiscus is power-packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C. Traditionally, hibiscus has been used to lower high blood pressure and recent studies show its effectiveness.
Fuzzy Navel White Tea is excellent served hot or iced and takes well to sugar or other sweeteners.
The addition of milk is not suitable for white teas due to their delicate flavor.
Traditional Hot Tea
Measure one to two heaping teaspoons of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 3-5 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey or other sweeteners.
Measure eight to ten heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 3-5 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
Measure six to eight teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place inside a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Position filter so that the tea leaves will be submerged and the top hangs over the side of the jar or pitcher so that leaves do not spill out once water is added. Pour four cups of filtered or freshly drawn water over the filter. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate 8-12 hours (or overnight). To serve this tea hot, simply pour the cold-infused tea into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
*Cold-infused tea has higher levels of antioxidants.
Fuzzy Navel White Tea, like all teas, should be stored out of direct light and in a cool, dry place. If stored properly, this tea should stay fresh for up to two years.
