White tea, considered by many tea experts to be the finest tea on earth, comes primarily from the Fujian Province in China. It is very lightly processed with sunlight and low temperatures.
Sometimes, less is more. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not bashing the normal processing techniques of tea. A quick pan-fry or fire-roast gives us the unforgettable malty flavors of black tea and grassy flavors of green tea, and we wouldn’t trade them for the world. But you don’t always have to cook something to bring out the best in its flavor—sometimes the berry tastes best from the bush. That’s the way it is with white tea. Our white tea leaves have been hand-selected from very tops of tea bushes in China and are minimally processed, to ensure that the leaf in your cup is as close as possible to the one on the bush. Look closely. These leaves are not cut, torn, or curled like other teas. The fine, silver down that covers them in nature has not been lost on its way to your kitchen. We pair these fine leaves with soft floral or fruit notes to compliment their delicate nature, rather than overpower it. Because with white tea, it’s all about the leaf, and less is certainly more.
