White Tea

Since production methods vary from producer to producer, defining white tea can be difficult. Typically, they are produced from new tea shoots, plucked before they can open and develop into full leaves. Once plucked, they are simply dried to seal in flavour.

White teas are usually associated with china, but excellent luxury grade white teas are also produced in parts of Africa and Sri Lanka. Like green and oolong teas, white teas should never be served with milk or sweetener. Their delicate character is always best enjoyed on its own.
