White Teas

Hailed for its delicate flavor and attractive hue when brewed, white tea is growing in popularity, and is part of the premium selection available here at The Sun Garden.

Harvested from the same plant as other teas, white tea is picked when it is young, giving the tea a unique flavor and colour. White tea also contains a higher nutrient count making it a great, healthful way to start the day.

Because white tea looks so attractive, it makes a great addition to other teas and flavors including our ‘blooming’ range. 

Like other teas, White tea is harvested from the Camellia Sinensis bush, but it is harvested when its leaves are immature, before the buds have fully opened. This allows for the maximum amount of nutrients to be retained in the leaves before its energy goes into flowering. The tea derives its name from the white appearance of the buds while they are still young, when they are harvested. Following harvesting, the tea is subjected to very little processing allowing it to retain its maximum levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants assist in protection against cancers, heart disease, and stroke as well as numerous other conditions. They can also alleviate the symptoms of cold and flu and boost immunity. Like other teas, White tea also contains small amount of fluoride which help to maintain strong and healthy teeth. Fluoride also fights plaque, giving you better teeth and gum protection as well as better breath. Studies show that consuming 2-4 cups of White Tea per day can significantly improve your overall health and well-being, so choose a white tea from our exceptional selection and make the choice to enrich your diet and lifestyle.  

On its own, white tea features a smooth, silky flavor and lacks the grassy tones often associated with green teas. Because white tea also pairs perfectly with other ingredients, it is also a feature in many of our premium tea blends such as “White Tangerine”, “Silver Needles with Jasmine” and “Blooming Heart”. With USDA certified organic options, our quality white tea selection has something for everyone.
