Smooth and Mild White Tea
Our Kumaon White Tea is made using the stretching bud and first two leaves of the tea plant. Harvested just as the plant awakens from winter dormancy, it is minimally processed in order to preserve its natural freshness. As with all white teas, it has a wonderful sweetness. The unique twist of this tea is its green taste that resembles honeydew melon, which can be attributed to the unique Kumaon soils. Contains (just a little) caffeine.

The Kumaon region was first planted with tea in the 1850s, but was too far from any port to get the tea out of the mountains. The tea experiments were abandoned, and for the last 170 years, the tea has thrived in the wild. Beginning in the 1990s, the government initiated a program to revive tea growth as a way to create rural livelihood opportunities.

Benefits to Your Health*
White Tea: With an abundance of antioxidants and health-supporting benefits, white tea is the most beneficial tea for one's overall health. It contains more polyphenols (a powerful, cancer fighting antioxidant) than any other type of tea.

We recommend brewing Kumaon White and most other white teas for 2-3 minutes with 170℉ water.
White tea leaves are the most delicate of all and can burn easily. When white tea is steeped for too long or with water that is too hot, it can become bitter and not nearly as enjoyable. Brewing tea is simple, but it is important to follow our recommendations for each tea so your tea tastes as good as possible.
