silver tips white tea
Grown in the Fujian province of China, tea buds are plucked within two hours of sprouting, then withered naturally in the sun. If your usual white tea appears green in your cup, then it is green tea; this, however, is the genuine article. Possibly one of our most exclusive teas - refreshing, light and aromatic.
how does it taste?
Refreshing, light and aromatic – think peaches and apricots. Very pure. We have chosen to bring you genuine white rather than green tea masquerading as white tea. If your white tea looks green in the cup, then it is green tea - watch out for fakes.
good if you're feeling
Impure of thought, word or deed. Forget the rosary and the Hail Marys – redeem yourself with a cup of this gorgeous white tea, crammed full of antioxidants.
how we like it
Drink pure. Adding anything would be like drawing glasses on the Mona Lisa.
Just cover one tea temple with water just off the boil and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. Garnish with cucumber slices.
- tea temple - 1 per person. Brew for 3 mins, best with water at 80 degrees C. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the job!)
- loose tea - 2 rounded teaspoonfuls per person, infuse for 3+ minutes.
Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.
