Okayti Silver Needle White Tea

New product

Handpicked from the most delicate and tender portions of the tea bush, early morning and just before sunrise, this White is a class apart. White Tea is made from leaves harvested while very young, and the buds are still covered in very fine, white hairs (silver tips). These hairs are what which gives white tea its name. Like green tea, the leaves are not fermented.
