Above the Cloud Tea - Classified as rarest of all teas, this high grown white China tea is plucked in spring right before the leaf opens. White, downy buds are quickly air-dried, resulting in a low-caffeine tea.

This is a light, gentle tasting tea. I usually love strong, bitter green tea, but I was looking for something of quality with low caffeine. I have enjoyed this one.

My favorite tea thus far December 22, 2013


Springfield, PA

Silver Rain has an earthy aroma like that of Dragonwell tea. It has a very smooth mouth feel from start to finish. The silky smoothness lingers on the tongue as well. This is a great tea for comfort and relaxation. Adding sugar can heighten the flavor profile but it is not necessary. Sometimes I add a dash of milk to my tea to add more body but Silver Rain is great by itself with its pure and simple taste. I would highly recommend this one!

Bliss in a cup! March 20, 2013


Columbus, OH

This is my first time trying white tea. I purchased it b/c I read white tea has the highest antioxidant levels and is the "rawest" you can get in terms of tea, so I felt it would be a good addition to my relatively raw diet. Wow is this delicious! Very earthy yet mellow, smooth and full-bodied. I steep for 3 minutes in an 8-oz mug w/a lid. Maybe it's me but I feel very calm and blissful afterwards. Love this! Will be a permanent addition to my tea collection!

My very favorite white tea of all time! I drink this hot and iced. Beautiful subtle flavor, low caffeine, full of anti-oxidants, and always a calming cup to soothe the soul. No surprise it has 5 deserves the highest rating I can give.

Montclair, NJ

Frankly I bought this tea as a sample because of its name and description -- and am delighted with it. Flavor is full and enjoyable. I'm not a connoisseur of tea, but do know that - for me - this hits the spot. I bought the 60-cup can.

This tea has a lovely, delicate flavor. My husband who doesn't drink tea, actually likes this one. What more can you say about a tea that is tasteful and full of antioxidents, catechins and polyphenol nutritional benefits

space coast, FL

This is my favorite tea. I have been ordering it for over 10 years from RoT. Just found the 10th Anniversary tea tin - Silver Needle! Note, if I brew a second cup, make sure to dry the leaves before using it again, or I have found it tastes "swampy." Wish they would go back to the old tim with the tea pot art work. I buy mine in bulk, so put in back in the old tin.

Can't Go Wrong November 05, 2011



It's absolutely true; if you're a fan of white tea, you just can't go wrong with this great leaf. After having a cup of this, it's hard to want a white tea with something added, just because it tastes so wonderful as-is.

A pretty, pretty tea July 26, 2011

I love to give this tea as a gift because it is so pretty. The image on the tin is very close what the tea looks like and the flavor/color is just beautiful.

A lovely cuppa July 06, 2011



Slightly grassy, but in a subtler way than I often encounter with green tea. I've found that sweetening usually overpowers the tea, but why would you need to sweeten a cup so light? Delicious.
