Product Details

Flowery Pekoe White is a light, delicate tea comprised entirely of single buds. The surface of the bud is covered with delicate hairs, giving the tea a velvety texture comparable to the petals of the edelweiss flower. The taste of this tea is both subtle and unique in its floral notes.

White tea is a very rare, expensive tea that is mostly produced in China, mainly in the Fujian province, which is famous for its prized white teas. Production is extremely limited, so it is often difficult to obtain. White tea comes from a rare strain of the tea plant and is only harvested during a few days in spring. Legend tells us that in the days of the early Chinese emperors, only virgins wearing white silk gloves were allowed to pluck the budsets that would become white tea. Once harvested, white tea is not oxidized or rolled, but simply withered and dried by oven or sun.

I use it as a way to relax. I also enjoy the added health benefits. I cant think of a single negative thing to say about this white tea, it was really, really good stuff. Tastes like its worth a million bucks.

Almost a heavy body for a white tea, but very agreeably so. Very smooth in the mouth. Tastes clean and slightly sweet. Best white tea I've ever tried, and I do love white teas.
