White tea production is relatively simple and yet the variety in flavours can vary considerably due to terroirs and cultivars.

In this flight box we present three White teas with very different aroma profiles to taste side-by-side. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting we can directly compare the teas and learn more about them in the process.

This White Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. The box contains a letter written by myself to explain the key differences between the teas and how these affect the sensory experience.

The box contains tasting cards to fill out for your reference. Once you have completed a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.

This box contains:

Silver Needle

Very early spring picked silver beige buds producing a luscious, thick and soft liquor. Summer meadow flowers and dry grass with sweet, ripe cantaloupe.

Elder White

The precious lateral buds of wild PuErh trees picked in late winter. Fresh cut wood, dried apricots and marzipan with a ginger spiciness.

White Peony

Fluffy blend of buds and leaves for a richer flavour. Gold, soft, thick and syrupy liquor. Green chestnuts, vanilla, honey and nut milk.

▻ Ten Step tasting cards
▻ Letter explaining the differences between each tea
