White Silver Tip Tea
White Silver Tip won the most coveted three gold stars in the 2008 UK Great Taste Awards.
This is not mass produced tea from large industrial gardens but loving crafted and you can taste the difference.
Our white silver tip is sourced from a farm high in the Fujian mountains near the village of Fuding. This is the ‘champagne’ of white tea regions. The farm has no electricity and everything is done by hand to exacting traditional methods. Tea may have the same name and come from the same area, but like wine, not all tea is equal.

The finest silver tips can only be plucked for a few weeks in late March/early April and only on days when there is no rain or cloud so that they can be carefully dried in the high mountain sunshine. Hand processing allows the tips to retain their exquisitely delicate flavour.
Sweet and soft white silver tips are low in tannin and caffeine.
Above all, white silver tips have the most delicious aroma and a wonderfully clean and refreshing taste.
