Restorative, Delicious, sweet, and silky

First tea we drink in the morning to gather our wherewithal for the day. A lovely delicious tea.

Silver Tip White Tea

So smooth, so sweet. Almost buttery. A nice, relatively low-caffeine option for me. My first time buying loose leaf white tea, but it won't be my last.

Mental calmness

If you find yourself needing to slow down your mental state, this is a great tea to help you with that. Best enjoyed in silence in my opinion. Kick back and cool your jets. I used to get it from a different vendor, but found that Rare Tea Co. does it best.

Silver Tip White Tea is one of my Favorites!

I've ordered both the regular Silver Tip and the Jasmine Silver Tip and love them both. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite! I find it light and refreshing.

Silver Tip White Tea took on special meaning after reading Henrietta Lovell's description of this restorative tea in her memoir :Infused:Adventures in Tea. It has become a morning ritual brewing a pot of this tea in my excellent glass tea pot (also from Rare Tea). This tea has a softness to it, a lovely aroma, and feels soothing like a gentle wake up call of body and mind.

Tasting Notes

Remarkably delicate, with the sweetness of spring long stored over winter.


Use 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2g per 150ml).


For the optimum infusion use 158Ā°F (70Ā°C) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

46Ā¢ per cup based on 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.

Delicate buds

Exceptionally pure


Fuding, Fujian

Our white silver tip is sourced from a farm high in the Fujian mountains near the village of Fuding. This is the 'champagne' of white tea regions. Everything from picking to sorting is done by hand to exacting traditional methods. Tea may have the same name and come from the same area, but like wine, not all tea is equal.
