Elegant and smooth with a honey-like richness and sweet, subtle fruity aromas
White teas represent tea in perhaps its simplest, most noble form. Tender buds and sprouts are plucked in early spring, then simply withered and dried to preserve and celebrate their exquisite character and delicately sweet flavor. These elite teas are known traditionally as the "Scholar's Tea" for energizing poets, statesmen and intellectuals with a reflective, calm state of focus.
