"Small tea farmers cannot compete with large farms and so they focus on the quality of their teas."
We source-out our teas from small tea farms, owned by our farmer-friends who focus on their tea quality rather than quantity. Our friend-farmers do not clone their tea trees although it can double or even triple production. They rely on rainfall, temperature, soil, even on weeds and grass that turn into natural compost with time. Each year's harvest is always an adventure!
Our white teas are harvested, withered and dried using traditional methods by our skilled seasonal workers. We create jobs, we limit the carbon footprint, we help preserve the traditional techniques that have been passed down and perfected through generations.
We give high importance on the polyphenolic content of the plant which is influenced by the soil, the weather, the terroir, and most importantly the process that is able to retain the active compounds of the leaf.
We envision individuals, families, communities
with longer healthspan.
Healthspan is the amount of time a person is healthy,
not just alive.
The White Tea Shop is a lifestyle movement that endeavors to reeducate communities about the science of tea. We inspire our customers to embark on incremental lifestyle change that can result to massive health benefits.
We partner with small organic tea farmers who allow us full transparency of the processing of our white teas. We pay our farmer-friends higher fees than the market rates because it is labor-intensive to hand-craft white tea -from plucking to packaging.
We celebrate foods that can support good health for a lifetime. At The White Tea Shop, you will be met with members of our team who are passionate about sharing the latest and most accurate information on white tea.
