Refreshingly light with notes of cucumber and cantaloupe melon


Spicy chinese food and rice




Chinese Emperor Huizong was said to be so obsessed with Silver Needle tea that he failed to stop a Mongol invasion. We've given this irresistible tea the number 52 – Huizong's age when he died.

Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

White Tea

White tea's the least processed type of tea: unlike green or black tea, there's no heating or oxidation involved. Instead the freshly picked leaves are simply left to dry in the sun. The result is a sweetly delicate infusion, often singing with complex floral notes.
