White Tea from Jade Spring Teas

White Tea is one of China’s special treasures. It is made from delicate young leaves and buds picked in the spring. The white hairs on the buds give it a whitish, silvery appearance, bestowing the name of Silver Needle on the highest grade. It is the least processed tea, simply being picked and rapidly dried. 

Chinese white tea is harvested for just a few days a year before the seasonal rains. It has a light, delicate, slightly sweet flavour that sharpens the senses without overwhelming the tongue. The alluring taste of white tea established it as an imperial favourite, and it was often gifted as a tribute to emperors.
