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.
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.)

Bliss in a cup!

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!
Best of the Best

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 stars...it deserves the highest rating I can give.
This is a tea everyone should stock

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.
