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.

This tea is mild and delish! Flavors do not overpower the smooth white tea. Very nice! Will be a staple in this house from now on. We love it!
I am usually just a black tea drinker but once I tried the Wild Apple Ginger I was a convert. This tea is perfect when you are looking for an alternative to black tea. The ginger flavor is comforting and soothing. The combination of flavors is perfect for day or night. Sometimes I add a bit of the Tupelo honey or any honey. I think the flavors are wonderful and it is now my favorite tea from Tea Forte!
If the entire Tea Forte collection were graded on a bell curve, Wild Apple Ginger would rate a respectable C. Not bad, definitely drinkable, but If I'm going to have apple tea, I prefer Harvest Apple Spice, and if I'm going to have ginger, I want Tea Forte's original Ginger tea, which I think is not offered any more. These are the five-star teas my palate craves. BTW, the most delicious tea in the white tea collection is Tupelo Honey Fig. I wrote a stellar review about it, but for some reason it was never posted by the webmaster. Tea Forte folks, how about pulling that one out of the collection and selling it in larger, pyramid-packaged quantities?
This blend is very mild for a ginger tea. The apples provide a moderately sweet base, and the blackberry leaves add a little tartness. The ginger puts a very light note of spice in the aftertaste.
