White Tea Leaves (Cut and Sifted)
Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis
White tea is made from immature tea leaves that are picked shortly before the buds have fully opened from the Camellia sinensis plant. The tea takes its name from the silver fuzz that still covers the buds, which turns white when the tea is dried.
Tea leaves destined to be sold as white tea undergo even less processing than green tea leaves. Instead of air-drying, the unwithered leaves are merely steamed.
Orders will be processed and shipped within 1-3 business days of receipt. Delivery time may vary depending on destination of the order. Because we use ground service for our deliveries, orders shipped to the west coast may take several days.
