WHITE & YELLOW TEA

White teas are even more delicate than green teas and some have higher quantities of antioxidants than most green teas. They are grown on a slightly different strain of bush and after being picked are left a while to dry in the sun, resulting in light oxidation. This can make them look slightly wilder than green tea.

Yellow tea is distinguished from green and white tea by its unique processing. This can take up to five days from it being picked and relies upon an instinctive feel by the tea master who processes it. This prevents the 'grassy' note found in green tea developing and produces a very mild, smooth infusion. The world's rarest tea, Jun Shan Golden Needles is the most famous Yellow variety.

    In addition to Fog Island Japanese Sencha and Chinese Pu Erh teas, which are currently being exposed to much ado in the press regarding their alleged benefits to weight loss, I have added my favourite, and I believe healthiest of teas, Gabalong 'Blue' Oolong. With the final addition of our Tea of Life White Tea for good measure, if there is anything in the health aspect of tea, we should have it covered here! The tea flavour is a mellow mix, with the distinctive note of caramel and vanilla of the Gabalong tea in the foreground. The delicate notes of the Sencha, whilst somewhat subdued by the other teas, adds a fresh edge to the cup, with the more earthy tones of the Pu Erh adding weight and body.

    This special white tea, grown in the high mountains of Zhen He, is our most popular variety. It comes from the heart of the very small harvest. It first came to our attention over 20 years ago when research published in Germany claimed it to have an energising, revitalising effect. Our research in the field since then would seem to back this up! White tea is of course now widely renowned for its very high levels of antioxidants. The cola flavour is derived from a complex list of ingredients including neroli, lime, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, coriander to name a few. This blend is zesty yet perfumed. Containing very little tannin or caffeine it can be brewed for a very long time without losing its delightful flavour.

Just eight will make a half pint of tea and you can use the same leaves again for at least another brew. If you do the maths you'll find it works out at just six pence a cup for one of the finest and rarest teas in the world! The tea buds that make this tea are hand-picked in gardens found among the chains of mountains, hidden in mist close to the Fujian border with Jiangxi. Each leaf is skillfully hand rolled into a tiny pearl size ball. The tea is then wrapped in silk mesh and carefully dried.

    A blend combining the three teas, which are currently being exposed to much ado in the press regarding their alleged benefits to weight loss. It is made up of a Chinese Oolong called Da Hong Pao Red Robe, Fog Island Sencha from Japan and Chinese Pu Erh. The tea flavour is dominated by the Red Robe Oolong, with it's distinctive toasty, almost mellow pipe tobacco note and ripe fruit aftertaste. The delicate notes of the Sencha, whilst somewhat subdued by the other teas, adds a fresh edge to the cup, with the more earthy tones of the Pu Erh adding weight and body.

    This white tea is a 'raw' tea and can be enjoyed in this young stage or left if you have the patience for many years to ferment into 'red' or 'dark' tea, as it is variably known. Personally, I think it is best enjoyed in its light, delicate white form. It has a mellow character and leaves a sweet taste in the mouth, with a hint of the famous 'earthy' flavour Pu Erh teas are known for. Grown high up in the virgin forests of Yunnan.
