White Peony Mini Caddy

Product Details

 

Known for its subtly sweet and refreshing taste, white tea is made from the youngest two leaves and a bud from each bush and experiences very little processing: the leaves are simply dried in the sun, or inside to control temperature and humidity.

White tea was first developed in China's Fujian Province during the Qing Dynasty, and specific tea bush cultivars were being planted towards the end of the 19th century. Our signature White Peony or 'Bai Mu Tan' tea was first created in Fujian Province in 1922: the downy leaves are harvested at the very start of spring, and lightly dried to stop the process of oxidation. Unlike black or green teas, there's no twisting, rolling or even steaming - the leaves are barely touched, to maintain that exquisite delicacy of taste and floral sweetness.

In recent years, white tea has also been linked to a number of health benefits. Containing a high level of the antioxidant EGCG, it is reputed to alleviate the aging process, promoting youthful skin, bright eyes and an all-round feeling of rejuvenation. The tea is also surprisingly high in caffeine, so it's perfect for providing a bit of a boost.

Now available in our lovely mini caddies – a little leaf goes a long way
