description
When you open each pouch, breathe the scent of the leaves in, then admire the diversity in leaf shape and colour.  White tea is ultra-light and delicate - the perfect tea to enjoy either hot or cold steeped out in the garden on a summer afternoon. 

These two white teas from China and Nepal are a lovely expression of white tea. To create a white tea, tea makers simply pluck then dry leaves from the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. It is the least processed of all of the six types of tea and is tea in its purest form. 

Our white tea taster box comes with:

~ Two 20g pouches of white tea (descriptions below)

Our Finum tea glass infuser (double walled glass, steeping net and lid/drip tray in one - the BEST devise to steep and sip your tea)

~ Our long handled teaspoon

~ Our tea steeping guide and a little card to introduce the box  

The teas in our white tea taster box are:

Sandakphu Snow, Nepal
Flavour: floral & sweet ~ soft & delicate
This rare white tea comes from the mountainous tea region of Ilam in Nepal, adjacent to the famous tea regions of Darjeeling and Sikkim in India, and nestled in the heart of the Himalayas. Carefully plucked and processed by hand in late Spring, these delicate leaf buds infuse to release soft, floral aromas of lavender and jasmine, hay and hints of white sugar sweetness. Light bodied and delicate, this tea rewards you with beautiful flavours over multiple infusions. After the first infusion, reduce the steep time to 3 minutes. Spring 2020 harvest.

White Moonlight, China
Flavour: Flowers, berry, sun-dried hay ~ light-bodied & fragrant 
This unique Spring 2021 tea is harvested from wild-growing tea plants in Mangshi county, Yunnan province, southwest China. It is simply wilted, then dried in a wind tunnel. The dark purple hues in the leaf indicate the healthful antioxidant Anthocyanin, also found in other purple fruit and vegetables. This nutrient adds a berry sweetness to the tea, which you can first discover by smelling the dry leaves. This is a fun, fragrant, light-bodied white tea with an intricate cascade of notes: lavender, rose, sundried hay, black and red currants and a hint of pine needle. The tea mellows with each subsequent infusion. White Moonlight works well hot or cold-brewed in sparkling water.


If you would like to purchase the teas only (not the infuser glass and spoon - although we highly recommend these!), select 'small gift box - teas only' in 'Size' above.
