Known for its cooling properties, White Tea is high in antioxidants and low in caffeine compared to Green and Black Teas. This tea has a pleasant, mild flavour with a sweet, slightly smoky undertone. It can be enjoyed after a meal or with mild food so the subtle characteristics can be noticed and appreciated. For a special summer treat, enjoy this delicate tea chilled.
Celebrated for centuries in the Orient, tea has shaped our world from the times of Chinese emperors and European explorers.
White Tea comes from the same source as Green, Oolong, and Black Tea; the tea bush known to botanists as Camellia sinensis.
White Tea is distinguished from other teas by the place it comes from and the way it is processed. This White Tea comes from the fujian province of China. Normally, Green, Oolong, and Black teas are rolled or broken prior to or during the drying process so that the essential oils can oxidize; this is a process known as fermentation. White teas are not oxidized at all, but are simply left to dry naturally, then roasted to seal in all the flavours.
