China White Teas

The white and yellow leaf teas of Fujian and Anhui provinces in China are highly prized. Rare, expensive and available only in small quantities, these teas were imperial treasures from the Song Dynasty through the Great Qing Dynasty (1644-1912 A.D.), and sometimes were referred to as the Emperor's Tea.

Made of delicate, early growth buds and leaves, our white teas are of the highest quality providing a very aromatic taste. Generally, white teas are the least processed of teas. The tender new buds are plucked, withered and air- or heat-dried. Brew in water temperature of 155°-185°F for up to five minutes.
