• Organic Fujian White Tipped Green Tea

    $3.50

     White Tipped Green Tea is a type of green tea that is cultivated in the Taimu Mountains of the Northern Fujian Province of China. The leaves of the white monkey tea are large, have white-colored tips encased in fine layers of filaments.

    White tipped green teas are typically plucked between the first and fourth week of April, that is during early spring season. Only the tip buds and one leaf are plucked and low withered, maintaining the white down. These young leaves of the teas are then meticulously gathered and manually shaped into an appearance that is characteristically bent, stout and brimming with white tips all over.

    The Northern Fujian region is known for their high quality teas primarily due to its conducive soils, a climate that combines mild temperatures with plentiful rainfall with contours supporting irrigational runoff along high elevations not to discount the respectful nature and culture of the areas residents.
