Collection: White Tea

If you have come to our tea bar in Hobart before, you know we stock more white tea than other teas. We love white tea! And white tea is getting more popular now! Here are some common questions and answers to help you know better about white tea.

What is White Tea?

White tea is a minimally oxidized, lightly caffeinated tea made from the youngest buds and leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is known for its light flavour, subtle sweetness, and numerous health benefits.

Is White Tea Good for Health?

Yes! Scientific studies support these benefits:
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Enhances skin health
  • Boosts metabolism
For the best results, we recommend enjoying loose-leaf white tea, which contains higher concentrations of these beneficial compounds.

Does White Tea Have Caffeine?

White tea contains caffeine, but usually in lower amounts than other teas like green or black tea. Normally, you can drink white tea in the afternoon ( early night for aged white tea).

What’s Aged White Tea and How is it Aged?

Aged white tea has been stored for several years, allowing it to develop a richer, more complex flavor profile. The aging process involves carefully controlled storage conditions to enhance the tea's characteristics. Over time, the tea undergoes natural fermentation, resulting in a smoother taste and deeper colour.
