AUSTRALIA'S HEALTHIEST TEA

Organically grown, hand picked and freeze dried tea leaves from Bryn Hill's Spring and Summer tea season. 

Freeze dried tea leaves are the next best alternative to hand harvesting your own leaves, and are closest to traditional white tea in taste and health benefits. Being minimally processed, and therefore 'raw', they are very high in bioactive compounds such as polyphenols, the catechin EGCG, L-theanine and saponins. The amazing health benefits of white tea are further outlined here.

AUSTRALIA'S FRESHEST TEA

Many teas currently sold can actually be several years old and incredibly stale, as the date of harvest or packaging is rarely made known. 

Bryn Hill's White Tea leaves move from paddock to package in under 24 hours.

Hand harvested + washed + freeze dried + packaged: that's it! No time wasted and no nasties added.

Ingredients: 100% Camellia sinensis buds and young tea leaves

Origin: Topaz, Australia

Harvested: 2023

Net Weight: 45g-55g tube

Preparation: Suitable for hot or iced tea

Bryn Hill is the only farm in Australia producing this incredibly healthy tea, sustainably grown on our tea plantation in Tropical North Queensland. During Spring and Summer, the organically grown tea buds and young tea leaves are gently hand picked, washed, quickly freeze dried then carefully packaged to ensure only the highest quality tea drinking experience.

Freeze dried tea is much lighter in weight than your usual tea as most of the water has been removed. You therefore require less leaves per serving-usually 1/3 – 1/2 of what you are used to using. Approximately 1.5 grams/ 250ml is a good starting point, with steep time and water temperature adjusted for personal preference.

These white tea leaves are harvested and freeze dried as whole leaves, but due to their very low water content and subsequent fragility, the final packaged tea consists of tea leaf flakes rather than intact, whole tea leaves.

The infusion of Bryn Hill's white tea leaves is very pale yellow with a mild herbaceous and vegetal taste. Due to the low caffeine content, it is a perfect refresher at any time of the day-hot or iced.

HOT TEA:

  • infuse 250ml of hot water (70-80°C) with 1.5 grams of white tea leaves
  • steep for 5-10 minutes
  • strain leaves and enjoy
  • multiple infusions are well suited to ​white tea leaves

ICED TEA: 

  • steep white tea leaves strongly for at least 15 minutes in hot (not boiling) water (overnight in cold water for cold brewed tea)
  • allow to cool and pour over ice

 

WHITE TEA LEAVES ARE HANDCRAFTED AND THEREFORE ONLY AVAILABLE IN VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES EACH YEAR
