White tea is the least processed of all tea. It retains the softest flavours and infuses to a light golden cup.
Loose leaf white tea is so good for you because it retains higher levels of antioxidants than other teas, undergoing no firing, rolling or manipulation of the natural leaf which has just been carefully dried.
To compare white tea vs green tea, the main difference is that the flavours are far more delicate and ethereal. White tea benefits from being particularly low in tannins and even after a long infusion it will not become bitter.
Our delicate loose leaf white teas are all skilfully hand crafted from only the most tender leaves of early spring. We gather fresh leaf from across the world to bring you a selection of the best white teas we can find direct from the farm.
Why Choose White Tea Leaves?
White tea is the least processed of all teas - with the lightest flavours. White tea leaves are gentle on your taste buds and your stomach, whilst retaining rich antioxidants.
Types of Loose White Tea
Our white tea is sourced directly from farmers all over the world including China, Malawi, and Nepal. Silver Tips are made with the unopened leaf buds and white peony is made from the open new leaves. The rarest of all are the Antlers which are made from the most tender stems.
