Our collection of global tea represents all the traditional tea producing nations with their signature varieties. Over the past 4000 years, the tea plant spread to each of these nations, where it took on a unique form and flavor due to the regional terroir, namely the local soil quality, humidity, altitude, and temperature. Each region also developed specialized methods of processing the tea leaf to obtain a particular taste and form. Shaped by the traditions of their culture, local tea masters are still developing and perfecting regional tea around the world. Explore our collection!
Caffeine naturally occurs in the tea plant, causing all traditional teas to have a naturally occurring amount level of caffeine. Chemical processes can be used to extract most of the caffeine from tea leaves, however we do not carry these processed decaf teas. We do, however, have a variety of herbal teas that are naturally 100% caffeine free. On the other hand, other traditional teas are naturally highly caffeinated. These create a sustained buzz that won't result in the familiar unwanted "crash" that often follows coffee.
Our Snowflakes is a pure, single-estate white tea. White teas have the highest antioxidant count of all teas because they are the least processed, and contain the lowest amount of caffeine. It is therefore the perfect meditative aid: it acts as a mild stimulant without causing insomnia or nervousness, working simultaneously to refresh and quiet the mind. Our sublime white tips have the tell–tale soft, white downy coating and a clean, subtle, very refreshing taste with overtones of chestnuts. This tea brews into a light, yellow liquor and has the delicate aroma of fresh, Spring flora.

Tea infused from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant is the world’s most popular beverage after water. The darker the tea, the more processing it has undergone, and the more processing, the more antioxidants are lost. White teas are made from buds and young leaves, which are steamed or fired, and then dried. The closest thing to fresh tea leaves, white tea retains the highest concentrations of catechin polyphenols, which research shows may help prevent cancer, lower blood cholesterol, and control high blood pressure.

Author: Jenny Yummy!! This tea is perfect to have at the end of a long day. It also is a great gift to give during the holidays.
Author: katherine wells this tea also promotes weight loss. I've been drinking one cup of white tea everyday for almost a month, and i have dropped 6 pounds. see what happends is that the antioxidants in the pute white tea attack the fatty cells in the body while nourishing the others with much needed nutrients. so its a win win situation.
Author: Elle B I start out my work day with some Bolder Breakfast and then drink Snowflakes to finish out the work day. It doesn't get any better than that!
Author: Marlena Amalfitano Lovely. lingering, delicate floral at six minutes. My first experience with white tea.
Author: Jen I thought this white tea was ok but I enjoyed the Monkey picked white tea much more.
Author: Umbreona THIS is what I call White tea. It looks rather pretty and the tin would make a wonderful Christmas Gift. The tea itself smells rather pleasant and brews with a very delicate flavor. It has no real initial flavor. Instead it has a light, sweet, and pleasant aftertaste. I highly recommend chilling this tea and serving it as iced tea.
On a Hot Summer Day these Snow Flakes really bring pleasant cooling relief like a tender chilled breeze over a dew covered green mountainside.
Author: Jason Good clean light taste, but for stronger (slightly anyway) flavor double the dose up to 2 tsp per 8 oz., same temp range, but steep it for much longer 8 min+. If you want to know what it will taste like just chew up a leaf and let it sit on your tongue for bit.
