With very low levels of caffeine, white tea makes a delicate brew with a fresh, mild and sweet flavour. The liquor produced by this tea is pale-yellow, with a wonderfully enticing aroma. Different varieties can also have notes of flowers, pines and honey, all adding to the beauty of the flavour. White tea contains antioxidants, specifically ‘Catechin’, and have anti-inflammatory properties, therefore can be used to help with many health issues.
About our luxury loose-leaf white teas: Most white teas grow in the revered Fujian province of China, however within our range we offer a rare virgin silver tip tea from the Imboolpittiya Estate of Celyon (Sri Lanka). We also offer the Imperial Jasmine Silver Needle tea, which has been naturally infused with the beautiful flower and aroma of Jasmine. White tea is made from young and delicate Camellia Sinensis leaves and buds, and only the finest spring buds are used. Once picked, they are carefully withered and dried under natural sunlight. Our loose leaf white tea range can be enjoyed at any time of day. The nature of these teas makes for a wonderful cold summer tea.
