Lovely, gentle tea

I bought this tea as a one-off purchase to see if it lives up to its description. That was a while ago and I’ve been buying it regularly ever since. The tea has such delicate but refreshing flavour. It’s my go-to when in a need of a hot drink.

My afternoon treat.

I love my afternoon cup of white tea. I find it so smooth and mellow, and refreshing. It lasts a long time so it's great value for money too.

Lovely refreshing drink

I've really enjoyed this tea. I bought it to start using a Gaiwan tea set that I had been given as a gift, gradually adding more water to the leaves as they slowly unfurl. I love the ritual and the subtle freshness of the tea.

Silver Tip White

It’s my daily treat. I infuse a pinch of the leaves in a tiny teapot with slightly cooled boiled water, 5 or 6 times - different subtle flavours each time. It’s a wonderful combination of gentle uplift and relaxation.

Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 70°C (158°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Delicate buds

Exceptionally pure


Fuding, Fujian

Our white silver tip is sourced from a farm high in the Fujian mountains near the village of Fuding. This is the 'champagne' of white tea regions. Everything from picking to sorting is done by hand to exacting traditional methods. Tea may have the same name and come from the same area, but like wine, not all tea is equal.
