Brewing the Finest Cup
White Tea is generally brewed at very low temperature to retain its mild flavors and aromas. To brew the finest cup of White Prakash, use about two grams (the amount of a single tea bag) of tea per 8.5 fl. oz. (a standard US cup) of water of temperature 79 to 82℃ (175 to 180℉). In general, use not quite boiling water or let the water cool down for about 1 to 1.5 minutes after boiling. Steep for about 4 minutes to enjoy the subtle flavors of white tea.
Fun Fact: The name Prakash signifies bright light in Nepali Language and is also the middle name of the Founder of Kanchanjanga Tea Estate, Mr. Deepak Prakash Baskota. Indeed, he has proven to be a guiding light for many as the founder of organic and cooperative movement in Nepal and even for the country itself as the state minister for home affairs. It brings us immense pride to name the most subtle yet finest quality tea after Mr. Baskota's middle name.
