White Tea

White tea is prepared by withering and naturally drying fresh tea buds and leaves and is considered a cooling tea by traditional Chinese medicine. White tea is traditionally from Fujian Province with four main types: silver needle, white peony, gong mei, and shou mei. Within these four categories, there are different grades of each. We offer only the best grades of three of the categories.

Showing the single result


The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh —oh the seventh cup— if I drink you,
a wind will hurry my wings toward the sacred island.
