The Color of Tea

     Those new to learning about and drinking tea will surely notice the color of tea varies tremendously, changing the taste and benefits they provide the drinker.  All teas come from the same plant, but the  different colors and flavors develop according to when they are harvested and how they are processed.  A lot of love, time and thought has went into this technique that has developed over centuries.
     Delicate flavors and low in caffeine, white teas have a subtle sweetness that tickles the back of the throat.  Because they have not been over processed they contain many nutrients that help to fight disease.  Lots of studies have shown that they can help in fighting cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and oral health.  They can also have anti-aging and anti-bacterial properties.  Plus, they taste terrific.  Here are some to try.

Snowbud White Tea Snowbud White Tea
White tea from the Fujian province of China. Snowbud as its name implies is an airy, light tea. And yields a cup worthy of its name: it is effervescent and graceful, with delicate, clean aroma. Snowbud is comprised exclusively of unprocessed leaves and buds, all gathered and dried in the early days of spring. Of all the teas we offer, our "Snowbud Finale" is the lightest one. If you enjoy the subtle, gentle taste of white tea, we hope you'll give this one a try.

If you are beginning your exploration of white tea, our "White A� Cappella" tea will serve a wonderful introduction.
