White Peony Tea

$10.95

White Tea (Camellia sinensis) comes from the same leaves as green tea, but are harvested at a younger age. Considered more rare, this tea is more difficult to harvest than green tea as it must be hand picked at just the right time during early spring. White tea is steamed rapidly and then dried.

White tea contains very high levels of anti-oxidants and has a unique, gentle and almost sweet taste. Organic and like all of our teas - of premium quality. Unfortunately this tea is not grown within Australia, but has been sourced from reputable pesticide free fields in China.
