TWG Tea innovators have handblended Yin Zhen, or ‘silver needles’, the world’s rarest and most fragile variety of white tea,
with a melange of wonderful fruits, flowers and spices to delight and tantalise the senses of teadrinkers everywhere.

The platinum-coloured buds of Yin Zhen are a rare delicacy picked entirely by hand before the leaf of the tea plant opens, then sun-dried in their natural state, yielding a most marvellous, raw, mineral tea of great complexity. Privileged access to the small quantities of this most sought-after tea produced each year in Fujian has been granted to TWG Tea to create the majestic elixirs in the White Tea Collection.

White tea is a rare delicacy, consisting of the first few tender leaves and new buds of the tea tree, harvested in early springtime. The leaves are silvery-white, often covered with a white down. Totally unprocessed, white tea leaves are simply picked and sun-dried, and consequently retain the highest concentration of antioxidants. Their infusions are pale, subtle and brilliant, making a highly refreshing tea.
