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.
This tea is very tasty and the best Roasted Dandelion I have had in many years. I will be buying again and telling my friends.
My family asked me for ideas of what to buy me for Christmas and I gave them the link for Tea Life. They bought me this teapot and I absolutely love it!!! I've used it every day since Christmas and it's my new favourite thing!
It's so easy to clean and I love that the strainer goes right to the bottom (instead of sitting on top like most other teapots) which means you don't have to fill right to the top just for one cup of tea. I also love the glass design so it always looks clean and you can see the colour of your tea to let you know when it's just right to your liking (especially good when you're brewing lovely colourful teas like the blue peaflower or hibiscus.... or a beautiful combination of the two... mmm, purple tea). Most happy with my gorgeous little teapot - thank you!
There's everything to love about this business - organic, Australian, yummy, medicinal teas, fabulous accessories, amazing customer service - you're doing everything right Toby - congratulations :))
A brew that gets better the longer it sits
I put it in a pot and the first brew was bitter and had a standard silver needle flavour with a bit of a floral fruity taste.
And after a second brew with the same flower it was much smoother and fruitier and the flavour really came out. Very nice tea.
A beautifully fragrant tea with so many benefits. Really enjoyable.
I wanted a healthier version of my favourite bubble tea and my lychee black is delicious. Will defiantly order from here again.
