White Tea: The Finest from China.

A true delicacy! White tea is one of the most delicate tea varieties because it is so minimally processed. It is harvested before the leaves are opened fully and the young buds are still covered by fine 'white' hairs. Downy hairs are considered a sign of quality.

Poets referred to these special teas as being, “white like the clouds, green like a dream, pure like snow, and as aromatic as an orchid.” The rareness of the tea trees and short harvest time cause the price of white tea to be higher than other varieties.
