Considered as one of China’s special treasures, White Tea is produced from the most tender and hand-picked leaf buds and tips. It started its journey from the Fujian province of China and got popularized in Darjeeling. Today, White Tea is reckoned as one of the most premium and rare tea types in the world. The reason behind it being considered premium and rare is that it’s produced only during a short spell of early spring from some particular varieties of tea plants. Essentially, the tea leaves are plucked from only preselected bushes very carefully during the early part of the day to preserve maximum aroma.
Darjeeling White tea is characterized by its silvery shiny look and has a pale yellow whitish color in cups with distinctive flavor and taste. The shine of the white tea comes from the pubescence of the buds and the gentle process of which the tea is manufactured. Two tender leaves with a prominent apical bud are plucked and withered for a longer duration than it is typically done for other teas. The withered leaves are then gently rolled and dried taking care that they are not exposed to extra oxidation.Read More
