What is White tea?
Like any other tea type, white teas also come from the same mother plant - Camellia Sinensis. Known to be one of the most delicate tea types in the world owing to minimal processing, these exquisite teas are harvested from tender buds which are selectively plucked before dawn with great care and attention to detail. These young buds are covered with prize 'white hairs' and hene the name 'white teas'. These leaves are then hand-rolled by experts and undergo a minimal amount of processing. White tea contains the same types of antioxidants as green tea, however in greater quantity and it has a smoother, gentler, and a sweeter taste in contrast to green teas.
How much caffeine is present in white tea?
A typical 8 oz cup of White tea contains 28 milligrams of caffeine, which is relatively low level in comparison to other caffeinated beverages, such as coffee or green tea. For example, a cup of coffee averages about 95 milligrams of caffeine per cup, more than 3 times the amount in white tea. In other words, it can provide an energetic boost, but isn’t as addictive and doesn’t give those unwanted jitters.
What nutrients are present in White Tea?
White tea contains beneficial nutrients with anti-microbial effects that protect the body against the occurrence of diseases. It contains tannins, fluoride, and flavonoids such as catechins and polyphenols. These compounds not only regulate the body's metabolism, but also protect the cells from any harmful free radicals which if not checked contribute to ageing, chronic inflammation, weak immunity and many other unwanted diseases.
Where do you source your teas from?
We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea plantations and small individual farms in India. Within the country, we procure from 5 popular tea-producing regions, namely : Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kangra, and Sikkim.
How are your teas packed?
After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.
Slightly sweet and amber colored tea! I love this stuff. Will buy again once my current bag is out.
I was a little sceptical about 'white tea'; however, I decided to try it anyway...I'm glad I did! I like the taste and the fact that it doesn't have a lot of caffeine. Coffee gives me the shakes but not this.
My only wish is that I had bought more. Very silky and light taste. Almost like sweet milk. Leaves are good sized when brewed. I haven't tried cold brewed yet but so far I'm very joyful for Vahdam! Thank you for your quality and product and packaging. I want more! ~I'll be trying some Chinese tea from Tealyra and will update on comparison.
incredible tea with no pesticides sprayed on it. The tea product shows the date of when it was harvested. So, you???re always getting fresh tea. Can???t beat tea leaves from the Himalayas. I drink this at work almost every day and a little goes a long way. Great taste great health benefits... what more can I say? Please, know that tea leaves are one of the most heavily sprayed crops on the planet. And the first time it gets rinsed is in your cup. This is why I turned to this product. The number one reason why I turned to this product. Here???s to your health.
Bought for a gift after seeing great reviews. Did not disappoint- The receipiant said it was a flavorful fragrant tea and absolutely loved it
