White and Yellow Tea

White and Yellow Tea

White teas are even more delicate than green and some have higher quantities of antioxidants than most green teas. They are grown on a slightly different strain of bush and generally undergo less processing which 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.

  1. Jun Shan Golden Needles (The World's Rarest Tea Type)

    Jun Shan Golden Needles (The World's Rarest Tea Type)

    This remarkable tea is picked on just one morning of the year before the Qing Ming festival. This is the rare 'Yellow' variety and should not be confused with the more widely available green Silver Needle from Jun Shan. When infused, the beverage is pale yellow in colour with a surprisingly rich taste and refreshing aroma. Since we began selling this tea in 1992 we have called it 'Silver Needles' but have recently changed it to 'Golden Needles' to better reflect its nature. It is grown on an island that rises out of Lake Dongting which, for four thousand years, has been thought to be the home of 'fairy like' creatures. Perhaps the mist that almost permanently shrouds Mount Jun has helped create this legend. It takes five days of unique processing to create the final product. One of the 'Famous Ten' Chinese teas. Exclusive to 'Imperial Teas of Lincoln' in the United Kingdom.

  2. Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls White Tea

    Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls White Tea

    This is the finest grade of this popular hand-rolled tea. Each kilogram in weight is made up of 14,000 pearls. 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. Learn More

  4. Moonlight White Pu Erh White Tea

    Moonlight White Pu Erh White Tea

    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. Learn More

  6. Cola Tea of Life White Tea

    Cola Tea of Life White Tea

    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. Learn More
