Japanese White Tea Powder Tea in a Teacup from Austria

. at . Leave a comment

I bought this teacup for $1.50 at a thrift store in WA last year. I bought it because of the cheery yellow pattern and the fact that is was made in Austria. I’ve been to Austria for a day trip. I’d love to go back and stay longer.

Day 14 (January 24)

Today's tea is Japanese White Powder Tea. Never heard of white tea. Never heard of powder tea. Today's drinking experience is one with two firsts.

Today’s tea is Japanese White Powder Tea. Never heard of white tea. Never heard of powder tea. Today’s drinking experience is one with two firsts.

I drank this tea hot and without additions.

  • I don’t know where I got this envelope of tea.
  • Since there are no directions on it, I had to do a Google search as to brewing instructions.
  • Put 1/8 tsp of this instant tea powder into 200 ml of hot (or warm) water. My teacup holds almost 200 mls (about 3/4th’s cup).(http://www.enjoyingtea.com/inwhtea.html)
  • It has a smooth taste and is quite enjoyable to drink.
  • I had this tea with a teacake (cake baked in a teacup). The mild taste of the tea went perfectly with the cake.
  • Not all the powder dissolved. I did not like having this substance
    I am guessing the pattern is "Queen."

    This is the bottom of the cup. I am guessing the pattern is “Queen.” I wonder what the initials A.P. mean?

    at the bottom of my cup.

  • One site said to whisk the powder into the water. I don’t have a bamboo whisk or any whisk small enough for this job.
  • After I am done with the teas in my drawer, I would like to explore the realm of tea powders.

White Tea Details

  • It is made with buds and/or leaves which are sun-dried or dried by steaming.
  • White tea is not oxidized.
  • It is a specialty of the Chinese province Fujian.
  • Some studies suggest that white teas contains more active cancer-fighting antioxidants than green teas. 

Your Turn . . . 

  • Have you ever had white tea? If yes, tell us about it.
  • Have you ever had powdered tea, besides and Lipton’s instant tea? If yes, did your cup have a powder residue on the bottom?
