White Loose-Leaf Teas

White Teas

All Teas comes from one plant and one style of preparation most often characterizes teas as White Tea.  This style of preparation is simple. The leaves are simply dried and without the complicated processes involved with other styles of teas. In Chinese this group of tea is called Bai Mudan or White Peony.  The tea looks very fluffy and may have some buds in the mix.  Our flavored white teas are all White Peony based teas. We offer Peach, Blueberry, Raspberry, Tropics and Tangerine. Because the flavor of the underlying leaves is delicate and soft, the fruit flavors are distinct.

Silver Needles 

Another prevalent character of White Teas is the use of the immature leaves or buds of the plant which has a white or silver color.  A tea plant's leaves can be harvested several times a season but the delicate, unfurled buds from the first growth in the spring are the most treasured for their potency in all nutritional and healthy goodness.  We offer Silver Needles organic White Tea as our first harvest white tea.  This premium selection has the hallmark characteristics of the slender buds which are covered in a downy like fuzz.  

A common misconception about white teas is that it is low in caffeine. The exact opposite is true. As tea plants awaken from its winter slumber, it tends to vigorously pull nutrients of all kinds from the ground and the results in a teas with higher amounts of caffeine and anti-oxidants. This is true of Silver Needles.

The flavor of Silver Needles can be described a being much softer and delicate than than of other teas like greens or blacks.  A good wine analogy would be to characterize white teas as light white wines like Pinot Grigio and black teas like a robust red Burgundys. The brewed tea is tends toward clear or yellow to light green.

The white teas we offer are all from the Fujian Provence of China the birth place of this highly sought after tea.  White teas are also produced in other areas of the world, but the best and original white teas are from this remote area of China.

White Tropics - Loose Tea

White Tropics brings a fresh (and refreshing!) challenge to the tea-enthusiast's table. Who'd have guessed that such a cheeky-yet-consistent tea would come of pairing whites with coconut and pineapple? Yet it does. Coming off as rounded rather than overly sweet, this blend lets the minimal firmness of the white baseline make for an interaction with the coconut and pineapple where none of the flavors need compete with the others. Instead, each plays a role in this luau – knowing that the overall impression is more important than any individual player. Whether East or West, cultures have long made exchanges of moments that have gone beyond language and other differences. The idea of finding a sweet, reflective tea with which one can set out to work, have a moment to themselves, or simply experience a curious, lively new aroma – is a nearly universal idea. More about appreciating what's been earned than about...
