About White Tea – Our Loose Leaf Teas
The most delicate of Hettie’s Loose leaf teas – White Tea – “ooh treat me gentle please”. Despite originating from the Camellia Sinensis plant (just like Green, Blue and Black Tea), this tea is extremely rare indeed. That is because only the top three buds on the bush can make white tea. At Hettie’s these buds are picked before dawn and left to oxidise over Jasmine, giving our white loose tea a very delicate flavour. One customer in our tearoom referred to Hettie’s loose leaf white tea as “Angels dancing on your tongue”. I am not sure about dancing angels, but if you are looking for delicate flavour stuffed with heaps of goodness and an aroma of rose and jasmine, you will not get better than this wonderful tea. It’s a treat… a real treat and there is no better place to buy white tea.
Health Benefits of White Tea
