White Teas

White tea is considered the purest of all teas, brewing up a bright, clear infusion. White tea is made from the fresh downy buds of the Camellia sinensis bush and plucked only a few days a year, typically between March and April when precipitation is at its lowest. Because it is rare and very high grade, white tea is one of the most sought after and revered blends for the tea connoisseur. White tea is the least processed tea, it is heated at very low temperatures or simply naturally dried in the clean mountain air, and it is not rolled. White tea usually contains buds and young tea leaves, which have been found to contain lower levels of caffeine than older leaves, making a perfect cup to drink day or night.
