White tea is one of the rarest and most prized teas. It is light, delicate and subtle and has no astringency – perfect for people who want to drink green tea but can’t warm to the taste.

Real white tea must be from the special tea bushes that grow only in China’s Fujian Province – the tea leaves here are covered in a fine silvery white down that gives the tea its name.

White tea, which typically has less caffeine than green tea or black tea, undergoes the least amount of processing of all the teas. The leaves are simply expertly picked and laid out to dry.
