White Tea is one of China’s special treasures; it is made from the delicate young leaves and buds of spring. It is meticulously harvested for a few days a year before the seasonal rains. The brew has a light, delicate, slightly sweet flavour that sharpens the senses without overwhelming the tongue. White tea’s alluring taste established it as a royal favourite and was often gifted as a tribute to emperors.
White tea is the least processed of all the teas retaining the most nutrients. It is low in caffeine and high in antioxidants. It contains high levels of the amino acid theanine, which is prized for its relaxation and mood enhancing properties.
