Zimbabwe White Tea (high polyphenol)
A rather special hand-made Pai Mu Tan style white tea made this year at the Tanganda Tea Company by our roving teaman
An African clone normally destined for common black tea was fine plucked then given a 60 hour shade wither with final drying under tropical sun
The cultivar used has been analysed and found to be naturally very high in AOX catechins – up to three times as high as some Chinese white teas
Despite being made from a cultivar normally destined for common black tea the aroma and taste of this Zimbabwe white tea is unquestionably superb
Tanganda Tea Company is diversifying away from commodity teas into speciality teas to remain competitive – if this tea is typical they will do well.
