White Loose Leaf Tea
With a very low level of caffeine, white tea makes a delicate brew with a subtle and mild flavour profile. Different varieties of white tea can have notes of flowers, pine and honey. White tea is fresh, mild and sweet and contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
White tea is made from young and delicate Camellia Sinensis leaves and buds that have gone through minimal processing. Most white teas grow in the revered Fujian province of China. However, our range also includes a rare virgin silver tips tea from the Imboolpittiya Estate of Ceylon (Sri Lanka). The Imboolpittiya Estate is known for its exquisite premium quality silver tips teas, made from single, un-opened buds that are naturally sun-dried in the misty hills of Ceylon.

White tea is so name because of the fine silvery-white hairs that appear on the unopened buds of the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. The brew liquor of white tea has a pale-yellow colour and a wonderfully enticing aroma. White tea contains varying amounts of the healthy antioxidant ‘Catechin’.

The production of white tea is very delicate. Only the finest spring buds and leaves are used. The leaves and buds are then carefully withered and dried under natural sunlight. This natural process creates a very fine tea that can be enjoyed throughout the day.
