      The most prized of all white teas, the rare White Silver Tip Tea (loose-leaf) by Rare Tea Company is crafted entirely from tender spring buds, high in the remote mountains of Fujian. Picked for only twenty days of the year, just before the buds unfurl to the first new leaves. 

      Exceptionally pure and natural, white silver tips undergo the least processing retaining higher levels of antioxidants than other teas. This is not mass-produced tea from large industrial gardens but lovingly crafted and you can taste the difference.

      The finest silver tips can only be plucked for a few weeks in late March/early April and only on days when there is no rain or cloud so that they can be carefully dried in the high mountain sunshine. Hand processing allows the tips to retain their exquisitely delicate flavor.
