White tea is tea in the purest form. After careful handpicking, the leaves are set out to naturally wither in the sun and then dried to remove excess moisture, preserving the natural qualities of the tea leaf. Unlike green teas, white teas are not fired, and unlike black teas, they are only minimally and naturally oxidized. The minimal processing preserves the natural sweetness of the tea leaf, often described as light, floral, fruity, and thirst quenching with no bitterness or astringency. Once rare, white tea has become more popular in the west due to it’s potency as a powerful health tonic. Our selection of premium white tea displays this special tea's famous refreshing qualities, while highlighting how different cultivars, origins and plucking styles can influence the finished product we enjoy so much.
