WHITE TEAS

White teas are primarily rare and early pickings of Spring, Summer, and Autumn seasons. Fine, tender sprouts, even the buds are selected for producing this category of tea in Nepal. There are three categories of white teas produced by excellent single farmers. It needs precision and acute judgment of time while picking and processing, these teas. The art lies in determined efforts to preserve the goodness of the leaf in its most natural form.
White teas are the least processed, almost in a natural state. White teas grown in the Himalayan Soil contain an abundance of minerals and vitamins. The voluptuous size of the buds and the raised hairs (pubescence) are the two determining factors that define the quality of the White teas of Nepal.
