WHITE TEA

White Tea
Most white teas are made from medium-leaf tea bush varieties that yield silvery-white sprouts and leaves. They are delicately hand-harvested only once a year, for a few weeks in early spring when the weather is consistently cool and dry. The withering process of white tea raises an abundance of silvery-white hairs on the dried tea leaves and buds. Authentic white teas such as White Peony are multi-colored like autumn leaves, and are covered with a silver-white "down" that resembles the skin of a ripened peach.

Silver Needle, the premier style of white tea, consists of only silvery-white sprouts shaped like needles without attached leaves. White teas take their name both from their appearance and from the original bush varieties selected for the production of white tea.
