PEONY WHITE NEEDLE © Wise Tea Garden .com
  White tea belong to the category of slight-fermented tea and is chiefly produced in the Fujian Province. It is characterized by the high content of succulent, whitish and hairy leaf buds with a slight greenish tinge. White tea is considered to be the purest in the world. Spring buds are plucked, dried, and sorted with no firing or steaming, and no fermentation.
Traditionally, white teas are grown on small freehold plots. For example, good quality Pai Mu Tan can be in short supply from time to time. It is grown in the mountains near Fu-Ding City (Fujian Province). The tea estates are small, numerous and run as cooperatives benefiting all. Some growers produce only a few hundred pounds of White tea per year. Note that White teas have a very high polyphenol (antioxidant) count and are usually stimulating. Tea Tutorial »

Kenya Silverback White
Country of Origin: Kenya, Nandi
Packed in Canada
Grade: Hand sorted white tips
Altitude: 5600 - 6500 ft above sea level
Manufacture Type: Handcrafted

It is believed to be one of the rarest teas in the world - only 600kg of it are made on an annual basis. This tea is made from only the choicest, silken and velvety white tips, flushed by highly specialized tea bushes in the Great Rift Valley's cool early mornings. The fresh leaf is hand plucked, hand rolled and dried naturally. The process is exceedingly laborious and even the most skilled tea artisan can produce only about 1kg per day. Cup Characteristics: Breathtaking flavor with notes of honey, roasted nuts and Madagascar vanilla. Note that Kenyan teas are all natural and almost organic by default: They are grown on estates, which do not use pesticides or herbicides because pests that typically damage tea crops are not found at their high altitudes. Instead, the estates use nitrogen (N) as a natural fertilizer making them almost Organic by default. Ingredients: Luxury Natural White Tea. Infusion: Light with African dawn gold notes.
