|The production of white tea is different from other tea. The leaves come from special verietal tea bushes and are not processed, but are dried and withered in the sun. Only special "two leaves and a bud" are selected with the ideal situation being two leaves wrapped around a newly developing shoot. After withering and drying, these leaves are then slowly selected and sorted out individually by hand.|
White tea is the most delicate of all teas. Using young tea leaves carefully chosen during picking, this tea is neither oxidized nor steamed.
Our white tea is from a small two acre garden in a hilly, mountainous region of the North Fukien province. The garden is approximately 3,500 feet above sea level. A delicate light green and white leaf, this tea is picked and produced in late March. Most white teas are very attractive but have no flavor. Not this one. This flashy leaf tea produces a mild sweet cup.
