The Chinese have enjoyed white tea for over a thousand years, but only recently has the rest of the world become aware of this secret brew. What makes it so special? Simply put, white tea is the least processed form of tea, made of beautiful silver buds and select leaves ,which have been steamed and dried. Because of its minimal processing, white tea contains more nutrients than its black or green cousins, making it the mightiest of the teas, the ultimate Health Tea.
Rare, striking in appearance, and pleasant tasting, white tea gets its name from the fine silvery white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant. The highest quality white tea, Silver Needle, consists only of these buds and is beautiful to behold.
The brew has a light, delicate, slightly sweet flavour that sharpens the senses without overwhelming the tongue. It has less caffeine than black or green tea, and far less than coffee, making it an excellent choice for those wishing to reduce caffeine
