Description

Our large leaf Red Jade White Tea is an organic craft tea, Hong Yu is the cultivar of tree, which translates as “Red Jade” or Ruby. Our Red Jade White Tea was processed with minimal handling, from handpicking to allow for the large, delicate leaves to remain intact, to drying; these leaves are handled as little as possible to ensure the freshest taste possible.

White tea has the least oxidation; this fine tea has a 0% oxidation. This allows for a delicate taste and unique health properties. White tea is known to fight free radicals that can cause cancer, as well as protect the skin, and strengthen your bones.

Once steeped, the tea liquor is clear and translucent, a light vegetal aroma is followed by a delicate, fresh, with an oolong-like vegetal taste. Red Jade White Tea is a luxurious Taiwanese white tea you will enjoy to discover and appreciate through multiple infusions.

Impressively delicate, pleasant, sweet flavour. Not my everyday tea since it is sweet but a nice treat from time to time.

This is really an exceptional tea. I've had a number of white needle teas, and the intial brew reminded me of a white tea I bought in Hong Kong (can't remember name now). But what is really unique is how many subsequent brewing are possible--yes, the flavor changes and becomes more subdued, but it's still a pleasant drink. (I bought it as loose tea, so it's also interesting to look at the tea leaves as they expand.)

I have tried several of the Tealyra’s white teas and this one is hands down my favourite!!! It has such a delicate sweet flavour. I’m not a fan of white teas that have the grassy taste (sort of like green tea light), so I was thrilled with the tea just being so smooth and wonderful! It’s now my favourite white tea!!! Thanks so much for having this available.
