Savoring the Experience:
Go for mellow and slightly sweet when you pair this tea. You can lean toward the savory-sweet end of the spectrum with sticky rice dishes or roasted chestnuts. Or you can go into slightly sweeter territory with waffles and whipped cream, tapioca pudding, or Asian red bean sweets. Remember, mellow, slightly sweet.

The Chinese began processing white tea in 1857 and began exporting the tea worldwide near the end of the 19th century. While the two world wars put a damper on white tea’s popularity, it has recently regained its allure in the West thanks to a few studies showing white tea’s antioxidant-rich health benefits.
