I didn’t really know what to expect from this tea. I like Teapigs tea, but I’m also quite fond of FLAVORED white tea, not plain. That being said, this is a very interesting cup. I like that it has different layers: a little bit of sweet grass and a little bit of vegetables. I’m not sure that I would like to have boxes upon boxes of this tea, but it is naturally nice.
Silver Tips White Tea
About this tea:
For two hours in the morning, for two weeks of the year in the Chinese Fujian province where white tea is grown, the pluckers are in the fields at first light to catch the early morning shoots. These are then withered naturally in the sun and sent to people who appreciate this kind of thing (i.e. teapigs). Possibly the most exclusive tea we stock.
Compare the large leaf in our tea temples to the dust in your regular tea bag; whole leaf is best.
Refreshing, light and aromatic. Peaches and apricots. Very pure. We have chosen to bring you genuine white rather than green tea masquerading as white tea. If your white tea looks green in the cup, then it is green tea – watch out for fakes.
Simply pure. Adding anything would be like drawing glasses on the Mona Lisa.
Good if you’re feeling:
Impure of thought, word or deed. Forget the rosary and the Hail Marys – redeem yourself with a cup of this gorgeous white tea, crammed full of antioxidants.
