What is White tea?
Like any other tea type, white teas also come from the same mother plant - Camellia Sinensis. Known to be one of the most delicate tea types in the world owing to minimal processing, these exquisite teas are harvested from tender buds which are selectively plucked before dawn with great care and attention to detail. These young buds are covered with prize 'white hairs' and hene the name 'white teas'. These leaves are then hand-rolled by experts and undergo a minimal amount of processing. White tea contains the same types of antioxidants as green tea, however in greater quantity and it has a smoother, gentler, and a sweeter taste in contrast to green teas.
How much caffeine is present in white tea?
A typical 8 oz cup of White tea contains 28 milligrams of caffeine, which is relatively low level in comparison to other caffeinated beverages, such as coffee or green tea. For example, a cup of coffee averages about 95 milligrams of caffeine per cup, more than 3 times the amount in white tea. In other words, it can provide an energetic boost, but isn’t as addictive and doesn’t give those unwanted jitters.
What nutrients are present in White Tea?
White tea contains beneficial nutrients with anti-microbial effects that protect the body against the occurrence of diseases. It contains tannins, fluoride, and flavonoids such as catechins and polyphenols. These compounds not only regulate the body's metabolism, but also protect the cells from any harmful free radicals which if not checked contribute to ageing, chronic inflammation, weak immunity and many other unwanted diseases.
Where do you source your teas from?
We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea plantations and small individual farms in India. Within the country, we procure from 5 popular tea-producing regions, namely : Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kangra, and Sikkim.
How are your teas packed?
After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.
Your shipping time was wonderful, The teas that I have tried so far have been very good. Thank you.
I have always liked tea, but never found anyplace with fair pricing and good quality. Until now. I plan on being a customer for awhile.
All tea ordered are superb
My first impression of the Blue Mountain Nilgiri White was of creamy citrus. I imagined this tea would be excellent with lemon cake and began to wonder what the Brits were about, going to all the trouble of adding lemon slices, sugar, and cream, when there exists a ready-made superior companion. Do they enjoy doing dishes that much? (taking into account that I do not bake my own cake) I put this to the test and came to the conclusion that this tea does indeed pair very well with lemon cake. In addition to discovering that cake and tea are yummy together, I did also decide that this tea is best on second and subsequent steepings. The first steep seemed weak and shallow to me, even when making a strong brew and pushing the brew time to just short of bitter. However, this tea does eventually come into its own, showing a full flavor that does taste creamy and lemony. Otherwise there is nothing special about the finish and it doesn't expose additional complexities, which is fine, because neither did the cake, and I liked both very much. Stay tuned as I have a theory that the next tea I try will have a decisively wet characteristic.
