What is 100% White Tea?

100% White Tea comes from the tender, white downy buds of the Camellia sinensis bushes from China’s Fujian Province.

Each bud is hand-plucked only a few days of the year, right before the leaf opens. 100% White Tea is minimally processed resulting in a cup with a delicate, faintly sweet flavor and a lingering finish.

Something Interesting to Consider…
Once reserved for the cups of emperors, 100% White Tea remains one of the rarest and most expensive of all teas. The Republic of Tea is honored to offer you the purest and the best 100% White Tea available.

Caffeine
100% White Tea has only trace amounts of caffeine.

Steeping is Easy

    • Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat just short of boiling.
    • Steep tea for 30-60 seconds if using tea bags or 2-3 minutes if using full-leaf.
    • For iced tea, double the amount of tea bags used, steep as above and pour over a generous amount of ice.
    • Experiment to find your favored steeping time and enjoy Sip by Sip.
