WHITE SILVER TIPS
The very first Rare Tea
We have been bringing White Silver Tips back from China since 2003. It was the very first tea Henrietta (our founder) sourced for Rare Tea Company.
When we began trading in 2004 it was such an extremely rare and esoteric tea that it was pretty much unheard of. People used to ask if white tea wasn’t just tea with milk?
Even within China White Silver Tip was and still is considered very rare tea indeed.
Henrietta was told she was crazy and no one would drink it. Thank heavens they were wrong.
Today it is one of our best-selling teas across the globe and still the tea Henrietta starts each day with.
Prices have gone up with the popularity. We are a victim of our own success. The very best selection of the first tips have become extremely sort after.
Popularity has grown within China, too, and its harder and harder to get the very best. But here it is.
