LOOSE LEAF TEA

Born from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. This tea, is close to the fresh pluck and is least oxidised as though just dried fresh tea. It owes its name to the fine, silvery-white hairs that cover the unopened buds of the plant. When the leaves are brewed, the colour ranges from champagne to pale, light yellow. The best white teas are made with young buds that are plucked early in the harvest season, at an elevation of 5000 ft and higher. Higher altitudes are colder, which helps the tea to mature properly. They are often withered for a long period of time before being dried and packed but sometimes they are first steamed or fired in order to deactivate the polyphenol oxidase and then dried.
