In a word: delicious! You can’t really compare it to black or green tea because it’s something quite different.
White tea has a very refined, subtle, but deliciously rounded flavour. It’s something you’ll really savour as you drink it.
Its subtle flavour means that white tea can be enjoyed at any time of day. But we quite like a refreshing cup as an early afternoon pick me up.
The leaves and buds that go into white tea are picked when they’re very young. They’re then gently oxidised which creates a very clean and healthy cup of tea.
The way it’s made means white tea is powerful source of natural antioxidants. That’s a word we like because it means this tea in particular is celebrated for its anti-aging properties. Ready to put the kettle on?
It’s important to treat the delicate white tea leaves gently to get the best flavour. Here’s how to brew the perfect cup of white tea:
Unlike most black teas, you wouldn’t usually add milk to white tea. Of course, it’s your cup of tea: you can do what you like, but we wouldn’t recommend it! Some people choose to add lemon, sugar or honey and we’re confident you’ll discover your own preferred flavour combinations.
