The best

The best white tea I’ve tried, perfectly nuanced and delicious. I drink it every morning.

Very refreshing

This is a tea that brews to a pale colour with quite a strong flavour and it is very refreshing and a nice change from Japanese Sencha and Houjicha which I drink frequently.

Silver white tea

This tea is so good that I don’t need any milk, sugar or lemon.

A joy to drink

This is an incredibly delicate tea with a beautiful gentle taste. I have found it perfect for that mid afternoon slump, very restorative.

Tasting Notes

Remarkably delicate, with the sweetness of spring long stored over winter.

Quantity

Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

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

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

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

Cost Per Cup

33p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Delicate buds

Exceptionally pure

China

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.
