Product Details

This tea has a delicate aroma and brews to a pale golden cup with a mellow taste and a hint of sweetness. It has a slightly more concentrated flavor profile than traditional budset white tea, such as the Silver Needle.

Perhaps no other Chinese tea is as misrepresented and misunderstood as Fujian white tea. Poetic gestures to white tea refer to it as being "white like the clouds, green like a dream, pure like snow, and as aromatic as an orchid."

White tea is a very rare, expensive connoisseur's tea that is only produced in China, mainly Fujian province, famous for its prized white teas. It is often difficult to obtain, as production is extremely limited. White tea comes from a rare strain of the tea plant and is harvested only a few days of the year. Once harvested, white tea is not oxidized or rolled, but simply withered and dried by steaming.

Until recently, white tea was only produced in China. Now, a few of the finest tea estates in the Darjeeling region of India have begun production of this exquisite tea. However, it is still difficult to obtain, as production is extremely limited.

Our Darjeeling White comes from the Poobong Tea Estate, which is the pioneer in white tea production in India. For the Darjeeling White, only the top two leaves and bud are used in this unusually large leaf tea.

Tip: When brewing Darjeeling White, be sure to add a little extra to your infuser as it is very fluffy and light. However, do not fill the infuser more than half full, as the tea needs room to infuse properly.

The Perfect White Tea
March 10, 2012
Reviewer:  Nick 

 - See all my reviews
This is so far the best white tea I have ever had, it's light yet still delivers an excellent flavor. Best served with 2 tsp of sugar in the raw/cup.
