Why drink white tea?
White tea is one of the rarest and most prized of all teas. Light, delicate and subtle, this much loved favourite is the perfect introduction to the world of fine Chinese teas.
True white tea comes from particular tea bushes that grow in China’s Fujian Province – the leaves are covered in a fine silvery white down that gives the tea its name.
White tea, like green tea, does contain a little caffeine, although on average less than black tea. It also undergoes the least amount of processing of all the teas. The leaves are simply picked, gently laid out to wither and then expertly dried. However, this simplicity takes great skill and subtlety from the tea master in order to create a truly balanced and nuanced tea.
