This China White Tea is revered for its unmatched subtlety, complexity and mellow, sweet notes. Emperors had this tea plucked from their secret gardens to share with visiting dignitaries who reveled in the airy fragrance and pure flavor.
Steeping white tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water just short of boiling. Then pour water over tea and steep for 30-60 seconds (if using tea bags) or 2-3 minutes (if using full-leaf.)

Good Quality White Tea

This tea had a nice smooth mild taste to it. Very good quality, especially compared to some that I've tried from other vendors. I will buy from this vendor again...and you should, too.
My Favorite Tea

This is my favorite tea. I drink it at any time during the day or evening. The taste is interesting and complex without being overwhelming, and I find it very refreshing. It works well for me because I have a low tolerance for caffeine and I dislike fruity flavored teas. Try it if you enjoy basic, pure tea.
Mellow, late-night cup

Sweet, pleasing herbaceous nose. Trickier to prepare than most teas -- mind the water temperature and the steeping time -- but it makes a sweetly fragrant, mellow cup. Pale straw in color. Vegetal flavors become more pronounced with longer steeping, and as these notes might seem to throw off the balance of flavors depending on one's taste, figuring out when to remove the tea bag is crucial. Experiment with steeping times to get the best out of this tea. Great low-caffeine choice for winding down late in the evening.
A simple lovely white tea

It is difficult to find a plan, simple white tea with no extras, but Republic of Tea has done it! This is my favorite tea, I always keep my kitchen stocked with it, and I consume between 6-8 bags per day. I bulk-order the 250-count version, now, since I was going through the 50-count cans too quickly. Sometimes I will add a bag of hibiscus to my mug if I feel like having a little kick of citrusey vitamin C flavor, but usually I use 2 bags in my travel mug. I love this tea!
Wind down the evening with this one

Nice & light, super mellow. Perfect low caffeine tea and for when you don't want a lot of flavors twanging on your tongue.
Don't burn it with too hot water

Don't use boiling water. Let it cool off some. Hard to find simple pure white tea without extras.
My first experience with a white tea

This was my first experience with a white tea and I really love it. Very delicate, it is a great late night tea for me.

I've heard that white tea helps aid in weight loss. I haven't seen any comments here about that with this tea. Is there a better tea for that purpose? Thanks for any responses.
Nice Light Tea

Not ususally a tea drinker, but this is nice & light with no bitter taste. I'm converted.

Lovely flavor. I usually drink Earl Greyer, but this is good change of taste.

I have been drinking this for a few years now and just love it. It is mild, but not too mild. As others have said, it is easy to over-steep, but I just pay attention to the color and take it out after a few minutes. Never stop offering this guys!

Great quality yet mild. I enjoy this tea every morning with lemon. This is my favorite and hope you never stop offering it.

I have introduce other white teas to my husband, but he keeps coming back to this one. He will occasionally request green tea,, but he is a white tea only person
Emperor's white tea
December 24, 2011
This was a repeat purchase. This is my 'go-to' relaxation cuppa tea at the end of a stressful day. It is complex, yet light, full-bodied and soothing. What's not to love?
love this tea, and so good for you!

A very light tea with a nice smooth taste. Goes very well with a light meal of fruit or a follow up to a nice dinner. Great for sipping.
It was ok
November 24, 2011
A little too mild for me.
October 26, 2011
I was looking for a white tea that I might like, so starting with the travel/sample tin of this seemed like the best place to start. I really like it a lot and would buy it again. But I may want to branch out and try some other white teas that sound good to me, first!

Emperor's White Tea is the purest, most crisp White Tea I have ever tasted!!! It has a very delicate, fruity overtone with an earthy finish. However,none of the flavors are too pervasive. My favorite from The Republic of Tea. Be careful though, it's very easy to over-steep this one. Best at 45 seconds. Enjoy!

The scent alone is the lovelest ever! Absolutely delectable. I love it.
