White Tea

White Tea

White teas capture a moment in spring, and feature some of the freshest harvest flavors and aromas. Their distinguishing feature, a covering of fine, downy white hair, adds a sweetness to the tea.

Our Silver Needle, the most famous white, is made using the traditional “Bai Hao” cultivar with flavors of melon, peach, and fresh apricot.
