Almost all teas come from the Fujian Province in China, where harvesters pluck new tea buds while they’re still tightly packed with new leaves. Because these tender shoots remained unprocessed, white teas have a silky, down quality that accounts for its delicate, complex flavor and silvery color. White teas also contain the least caffeine of all teas, 10-15 milligrams per 8-ounce cup.
Two delicious varieties are White Peony, named for the first spring flowers and Silver Needle, whose leaves look like silver needles when dried. Our varieties of white teas include: Organic Silver Needle, Organic Royal Wedding Tea (a blend of black and white teas), and Organic Hawaiian Passion.
