White teas have come into their own in the past several years. Prized for their antioxidants and many health benefits, these teas are now becoming more and more popular. In China they are known for their cooling properties and for stimulating the intestinal tract.
White teas are mild in the cup, containing a preponderance of buds and typically manufactured early in the year. Pai Mu Tan (Bai Mu Dan) or White Peony is the grade consumed on a regular basis. Silver Tips and Silver Needles are the top grade of white teas. It is also the tea after which our website is named.
