  •  A very nice-looking silvery-green tea made from a single young leaf and bud. One leaf and a bud picked only in the first few sunny spring days can earn such a character. Meticulous handling and judgmental slow oxidation makes this tea fine and extraordinary.

    The very first bud and a new leaf is hand plucked with precision in the morning freshness from the garden. The leaves are then withered (removal of excess moisture from the tender bud and leaf) for about half an hour under the sun and then taken inside a closed room for further withering by supplying cold dry air. The withering process last the whole night and is combined with intermittent mild rustling of leaves by hand during the entire process and early in the morning, the withered leaves are brought to the rolling room where the leaves are lightly rolled and kept for natural and final oxidation of White Oolong. Once the oxidation profile required for this tea has been reached, the teas are dried in a wood fired dryer. The result is an exclusive white Oolong that appears silvery (curled silver tips), often confused with White teas. Unlike white teas where oxidation is kept at around 3 - 5 %, White Oolong is oxidized as high as 20% and has a more intense floral flavour and deeper yellow colour. This tea is highly recommended for enthusiasts of white and lightly oxidised Ulong teas.
