Intricate with a delicate, light sweetness, these white teas are made with each season’s youngest, freshest shoots. Unlike other true teas, loose white tea remains unprocessed, making it very low in caffeine unparalleled in its freshness.
• Cultivated in China, mostly in Fujian Province
• Very low in caffeine
• Contains calcium and potassium as well as other essential minerals
Almost all teas come from Fujian Province, China, where harvesters pluck new tea buds while they’re still tightly packed with new leaves. Because these tender shoots remained unprocessed, white tea has a silky, down quality that accounts for its delicate, complex flavor and silvery color. White tea also contains the least caffeine off 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 whites include:
Peony White Needle;
Silver Needle (organic);
Royal Wedding Tea – black and white teas, bergamot and roses;
