"Pleasant, delicate flavor. Perfect if you like tea "straight," without sweeteners or dairy, as I do. I prefer loose tea like this--it just seems fresher." ~ product review by laughingwater

  • Yields higher antioxidant concentrations and less caffeine



  • Certified organic loose leaf white tea



  • Traditionally known as the "Scholar's Tea"


Derived from the same Camellia sinensis plant as its more familiar green tea cousin, white tea is the least processed form of tea, made from hand-picked buds and select leaves that are quickly dried to minimize oxidation. This yields a product with higher antioxidant polyphenol concentrations and less caffeine than other forms of tea, with a complex yet subtle, slightly sweet flavor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by What??? I'm confused... China or Bulgaria? All the way from China to your cup... Product of Bulgaria Certified Organic by Balkan Biocert, Plovdiv, Bulgaria 4018. January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality tea I have been buying and drinking this tea for over a year. Love it and excited about the health benefits. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson Organic Certified Organic Loose Leaf White I love the packaging, the flavor, the price and the quantity of it. My family drinks it as well. Will order more. April 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucky to have found this tea This tea tastes delicious, almost naturally sweat and thick. I really love the taste which is quite different from any organic or regular white teas you buy in supermarkets. It also tastes a lot(!!) better than the green tea offered in a similar package. I like the fact that it is loose and you don't have to steap the paper bags (which are usually made of chlorine-bleached recycled paper(!). The only minor drawback is that it contains not only leaves but also small twigs which do not affect the taste. It's OK with me, but some people may object. September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasant, delicate flavor Pleasant, delicate flavor. Perfect if you like tea "straight," without sweeteners or dairy, as I do. I prefer loose tea like this--it just seems fresher. I store the tea in a tea tin, to keep it fresh. To prepare it, you want to let the boiling water cool a minute or two. I'm often too impatient to wait, so I pour the water in a slow steam about 2 feet above the tea leaves in my teapot, figuring exposure to the air will cool the water a bit. That seems to work for me. I use 1 heaping teaspoon for my 32 oz teapot (my teapot comes with a strainer). When I'm down to the last 2 cups, I find the tea to be a little two strong for me, so I dilute it with boiling water. Those last cups taste as good as the first cups. August 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by delightful, subtle flavor I was favorably impressed with this tea for its delicate, subtle flavor. It compared well to more expensive white teas I've had, and white tea is packed with antioxidants. Try rinsing your face with the last few tablespoons in your cup -- so refreshing and good for skin. March 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by chopped dry tea leaves? This is definitely a low-quality white tea. It's essentially a bunch of coarsely chopped, dried and crispy whole tea leaves. There are very few buds, which typically are the only part of the tea plant found in loose leaf white tea products, and this mixture included mature leaves and stems. The flavor is somewhat pungent. That being said, it's obviously the tea plant used, it produces the same nice feelings as higher-quality white tea, and you can't beat the price! January 30, 2014
