White tea, one of the six main categories of Chinese teas, is a uniquely gem in the Chinese tea culture. This class of Chinese teas has a hierarchy ranking within the family based on their potential quality, which is quite different from other teas. The variation in white is is limited, therefore buying white tea is not as complicated as some others.
The Fu-Ding area of the Fu Jian Province, south-east of China is the birthplace of all white teas, and still the heartland of white tea production. White teas have been produced here for about 1000 years. (The image on the right is the organic tea plantation where our Silver Needle and White Peony are grown.)
We offer the top three Fu-Ding white teas at our online tea shop: Silver Needle, White Peony and Shou Mei.
These white teas are for those who are into buying the most authentic original Chinese Fujian white teas.
The Yunnan Province, south-west of China is known for its Pu-erh tea production. Its unique natural fertile environment, including the high mountain ranges and unspoiled forests is ideal for tea plants to grow, especially the arbour tea trees, in comparison to the tea bushes alone the east regions of China. The tea crops produced here are, strong, potent and full of internal energy, which is ideal for white tea production.
Yunnan has thus produced a few premium white teas during the recent years, drawing significant attention due to their relatively lower prices in comparison to the Fu-Ding white teas. (Fu-Ding white teas' market values have gown quite sharply during the last decade due to the increasing demand.)
Yunnan white tea is definitely a value for money option for those who are buying, or trying white teas with a budget.
Some re-sellers add cheaper ingredients such Goji, citrus, other flowers or fruits and call them a blend. Our organic white teas are unadulterated and of premium quality (please read our customer reviews), as we believe in pure tea, pure taste and natural health.
Fu Jian is also the home country of En Jie - the founder of this business.
"I am particularly proud of the quality of the white tea I have been able to provide and gratified that my customers enjoy these so much. I highly recommend our white teas to you." EnJie.
