White teas are considered by some to be the purest in the world. Spring buds are plucked, dried and sorted - no pan firing or steaming, no fermentation, just pure tea. Traditionally these are grown on small freehold plots - some growers produce only a few hundred pounds per year.
Our trusted relationships with finished leaf manufactures ensure that we're able to secure quantities of even the rarest whites, often before they reach auction, helping to keep profits in the grower's pockets. Note: White tea has a very high polyphenol count.
