Produced mainly in the hilly territories of Fujian province, white tea is one of China’s greatest treasures. White tea is made from the youngest and most tender hand-picked leaves and buds, producing a snowy-coloured brew that is fresh and delicate in flavour. Being only lightly fermented, allows the tea to retain much of its valuable properties, but the processing of white tea is a laborious one, requiring great detail and time. This along with its high nutrient profile makes white tea one of the most expensive teas around today.

Tried & Tested Tips
To prevent any bitterness in taste, avoid over-steeping.
So as not to burn the delicate tea leaves, use water that is just below boiling point.
For a more intense flavour (especially for iced teas) use a little more of the tea.
Suitable with white sugar, brown sugar, honey, rock sugar, agave, maple syrup and sweetener.
