From Rare Tea Company

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.

I got a Rare Tea Co. gift set for Christmas that included six different unflavored teas. This one is by far my favorite of the bunch and quite possibly my favorite white tea I’ve ever tried! The buds are very downy and brew up such a sweet, delicate fresh-tasting brew. It tastes like sugar-snap peas fresh off the vine and sips down super smooth with no astringency at all. It also re-steeps beautifully! This is definitely going on my wish list.
