White Tea

White teas are the least processed of the six tea types, yet often the most challenging to perfect. With sweet, delicate flavours, soft textures and a thirst-quenching character, they are the purest example of authentic tea at it’s best.

    What Is White Tea?

    The craft of Chinese white tea is a simple but precise process. The tea is picked, withered and then dried, often in the sun. With minimal intervention or machinery used in this process, white tea retains a naturally pure flavour. Though there are still essential choices for tea producers to make and create the end result. For example, the different styles of white tea in China are defined by what part of the tea plant you choose to pick. Silver Needle is crafted with just the buds for a sweet, syrupy flavour, while White Peony is made from the buds and one or two young leaves for added complexity.
