What is white tea made of?
It is one of the finest and freshest teas, primarily originating from the Fujian province. White tea is made of the Camellia sinensis plant, just like green and black tea.
White tea is made by harvesting the immature leaves and buds when they are still covered by fine white hairs, hence the word “white” name. The buds are hand-picked before opening in early spring, then withered, and dried or steamed quickly. The picking at a younger age results in a smooth, naturally sweet and subtle tasting profile with a hint of floral tones. The minimal processing of the buds and leaves allows for a softer, more delicate flavour compared to Green Tea and Black Tea and a higher potency of antioxidants.
Unlike Green Tea and Black Tea, the leaves are not rolled or processed further, hence some people also refer to it as “raw” tea. Our loose leaf blend with rose petals is perfectly blended to create a sweet, delicate symphony of flavours.
