China White Tea
Stash China White Tea, an extraordinarily rare tea, is produced only in China’s Fukien Province, entirely from the tip or buds of a special tea plant. These tea leaves are plucked at dawn on only two days of the year. Once harvested, white tea is not oxidized or rolled, but simply withered and dried by steaming. White tea requires an experienced palate already initiated into the exquisite, subtle flavors of green and oolong teas. Its name, a literal translation from the Chinese, probably comes from the very pale color of its liquor. China White has no astringency and just a hint of sweetness. Its very subtle taste is a treat for the connoisseur.
True teas are made from the dried leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, the tea plant, which was first cultivated in China and found growing wild in India. Chinese monks and European traders introduced it to Japan, Sri Lanka and other countries. Today, there are more than 3,000 varieties of tea, each having its own distinct character and named for the district where it is grown. Since 1972, Stash has been committed to providing premium quality teas and an unsurpassed tea drinking experience. Stash begins with simply excellent tea leaves from the world’s premier tea gardens and all natural botanical ingredients gathered from around the world. Meticulous blending and tasting of every tea ensures you will enjoy full flavor in every cup.
