White tea from the Fujian province of China. An airy, light tea, which yields a cup worthy of its name: very delicate body, with a clean, barely sweet aroma and effervescent texture. Snowbud is composed of only the newest leaves and buds, all gathered and dried in the early days of spring. Of all the teas we offer, our Snowbud is the lightest one. If you enjoy the subtle, gentle taste of white tea, we hope you'll give this one a try.
This tea contains a low level of caffeine | Steep at 180° for 3-5 minutes.
Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin
Fujian province is one of China's most prolific tea producing areas. These teas account for one-fifth of China's total tea output, and the consistently high quality keeps them in demand. A coastal province (Taiwan lies just to the east, across the Taiwan Strait), Fujian benefits from an excellent climate, combining mild temperatures, abundant rainfall, and very mountainous terrain. The misty mountain scenery is a mainstay of traditional Chinese art. In fact, the traditional description of Fujian is '8 parts mountain, 1 part water, and 1 part farmland.' Fujian has a long history of cultivating tea: over 1,000 years.
