A true tea type, White Tea was first developed centuries ago in China (perhaps as long ago as 1105AD), and is perhaps the tea closest to a freshly plucked tea leaf. White Tea undergoes minimal processing, which means fresh leaves are virtually harvested and dried.
Some accidental oxidation will occur, but the aim is to keep the tea delicate and light. White Teas are considered very premium and in some cases extremely rare. Like all tea though, quality can vary greatly.
Caffeine – Yes
Flavour – Fruity, earthy, nutty, delicate
Oxidised – Can be very slightly
Brewing – Approx 75-80c for 2/3 mins
Milk – Not recommended
Here are some great White Teas available in our online store.
