Did You Know?
The least processed and rarest of all teas, white tea has the highest concentrations of polyphenols and is the most challenging to produce and procure. Once a year, in early spring when the buds and leaves are still closed and covered by fine silvery-white downy hairs, the leaves are delicately hand-plucked. They then undergo a meticulously monitored drying process where the tea is withered. Tea Forté works directly with these artisan- farmers who tender the delicate process to assure that the white tea that we offer yields an exquisitely subtle tea-drinking experience.
White tea is considered the purest of all teas. Plucked only a few days each spring when the Camellia sinensisplants are reemerging from winter dormancy, it is revered by tea connoisseurs for its delicate, fresh flavor.
Our white tea is one of the most highly-prized teas available, comprised of carefully plucked unopened buds and the younger leaves of the plant. The leaves arenaturally dried in the sun before they are lightly processed to prevent oxidation, keeping the leaves closer to their natural state,low in caffeine and high in antioxidants.

All year round this is an absolutely delicious tea. I adore it. I'm sad the site doesn't sell the pyramid diffusers, it makes me have to go to specialty stores in my area. But incredible!!!!
I just received a pouch of this in the mail and am drinking my first brewed cup. While the flavor is excellent, a light fruity taste with a strong rosemary aroma, I'm wondering about the color. It's an odd, grey-green, not the bright pink depicted above. I realize the color in teas can be off depending on how much of the individual ingredients are in each teaspoon, but this is such a strange, varying difference that I thought it worth mentioning. Perhaps the color will perk up on my second cup.
Tangerine? Rosemary? Paired? Somehow, it works. Save it for a moody day when you have time to savor its complexity.
The citrus scent and slight tang is nicely offset by the spice of rosemary. Very fragrant and invigorating without being too strong.
The tangerine, apples and rosemary combine for a sweet citrus tea with just a touch of spice. It's an unusual flavor mix, but I have to say that I found it quite pleasant.
This tea is very tasty! I bought it as part of the harvest sampler set, and I was able to brew three cups from one pouch. The flavor is full, yet delicate. I recommend!
