China White Tea

White Teas are made from young leaves and buds that are steamed and dried. The leaves are covered in a soft layer of silvery hairs, their flavour is so very delicate and special. When brewing white tea, let the kettle boil, leave to stand about 1 minute before pouring onto the dry leaf, as boiling water tends to scorch the exquisite tea.

Pai Mu Tan (White Peony) A large, feathery, almost silver leaf, its pale colour and magical flavour is elegantly spicy. Never drink this delicate and refreshing tea with anything else in our opinion. The cleansing power of its essences have been thought to rejuvenate the body for years in China. While we can’t claim to know the truth of that we can say that its favourite among the staff of Wilkinson’s for its relaxing benefits.
