Unity White Tea is both refreshing and comforting, with a deep flavour reminiscent of honey and dark chocolate. Balled into a perfect sphere shape symbolising the unity of family and loved ones, Unity White Tea is ideal for sharing at gatherings, as the long-lasting flavour keeps the conversation going for hours. It is harvested and hand-rolled in Fujian, the birthplace of white tea.

Made of Gong Mei, our Unity White Tea is already aged four to five years and will continue to age the longer you keep it, becoming sweeter and mellower over time. This white tea handles hot temperatures well without getting bitter. Try boiling it on the stove for an even richer flavour!

What is Gong Mei White Tea?
Gong Mei 貢眉 is the third picking grade of white tea, after Silver Needle 白毫銀針 (purely buds) and White Peony 白牡丹 (buds and leaves), and comprises mostly leaves with the occasional furry white bud. The higher proportion of larger leaves gives it a more robust, full-bodied flavour, and makes it ideal for ageing.

We always say that personal preference doesn’t have to follow picking grades and market prices. You might like Gong Mei more than the finest, most expensive Silver Needle. It is up to you which type of tea you most enjoy on any particular day. 

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
1 ball | per 100ml | 95-100°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 5 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
1 ball | per 300ml | 100°C | 3 mins
+ 1 min per steep for at least 3 steeps

As a balled tea, Unity White Tea needs a bit of heat to loosen up and unfurl. You can ‘rinse the tea’ with boiling water (throwing out the first infusion) to help it open faster.

We even like to boil Unity White Tea over a stove on low fire for 30 mins. Boiling it helps to release its full flavour and medicinal properties faster. It doesn’t get bitter but the dark chocolate-like taste comes out in full!

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
