The rarest and most re­fined of teas for the dis­cern­ing tea drinker. Sil­ver tips, real white tea is made from the hand­picked buds of the Camel­lia sinen­sis plant.

BLACK TEA:

Black teas are fully fer­mented, and it is the most com­mon type of tea from Sri Lanka, In­dia, Kenya and other for­mer Bri­tish colonies.

OOLONG TEA:

Oolong teas are partly ox­i­dised or fer­mented. The teas are picked, of­ten three leaves and a bud, with­ered, fer­mented then heated, rolled and dried.

GREEN TEA:

Green tea is un­fer­mented, main­tain­ing a gen­er­ally mild, light and some­times as­trin­gent char­ac­ter. The most pop­u­lar tea in Ja­pan is Sen­cha, made by a method unique to Ja­pan.
