White tea is famous for its rarity, sophistication, and undeniable health benefits! White tea is produced in a Chinese province Fujian, and is the least processed of all teas. White tea takes about 3 days to produce. This process is slightly longer for white tea than for most other types of tea. This is the case because of the 2-day withering that white tea undergoes. However, that is what makes white tea so unique. The most famous types of white tea are White Peony and Silver Needle.
Bedford tea offers a good range of white teas, including the most famous ones. Some of our white teas are organic. Our selection of the finest white tea will appeal to every tea addict!
Here are some examples of white tea from our collection:
Pai Mu Tan, also known as White Peony Tea, is one of the best known white teas. It is best brewed at 70 – 80 C° and its liquor is of a slightly gilded pale green colour. It has a delicate floral fragrance and a fresh fruity flavour, which would make it a wonderful choice for afternoon tea! We also offer this tea as an Organic White Peony Tea, that contains solely organic ingredients.
The Silver Needle tea, known as Baihao Yinzhen, is one of the finest and most celebrated varieties of white tea.
The Silver Needle tea is well known for its health benefits since it contains a lot of antioxidants such as polyphenols. Our Silver Needle white tea has a nutty, almost sweet flavour, as well as a delicate fruity aroma, all in a pale ochre coloured cup. This tea would be a perfect choice for afternoon tea!
We have blended this superior quality loose leaf white tea and named it “Heaven’s Key”, which is not surprising because everything is heavenly about this tea: its refreshing flavour, its delicate aroma, and most importantly, its health benefits! Just imagine the freshness of orange and grapefruit, the sweetness of the rose aroma, and all this in your teacup! What is more, white tea and aloe vera are great sources of antioxidants, so take pleasure in tasting this aromatic tea and get health benefits as a bonus!
As the name suggests, this superior quality white tea is an ideal choice in the evening. We have blended white tea with bamboo leaves, pink rosebuds, spearmint and marigold petals. All of these components will produce a delicate aroma that will definitely have a soothing effect on you after a long busy day. What is more, white tea is widely known for its high content of antioxidants, so you have nothing to worry about! So, a cup of Sleeping Beauty tea, and you will sleep like an angel.
We have created this exquisite white tea, which owes its name to its unmistakable bergamot flavour, that vividly reminds us about the classic Earl Grey! Our Organic White Earl Grey Tea “The Earl in White” is a refined white tea containing only organic ingredients. This tea, like all white teas, is very rich in antioxidants, such as polyphenols, so its health benefits are undeniable. This tea contains marigold bloom petals, as well as bergamot and vanilla flavouring that add to its fragrance and sweetness, and make it a perfect choice for afternoon tea!
