The least processed and rarest of all teas, white tea has the highest concentrations of polyphenols and is the most challenging to produce and procure. Once a year, in early spring when the buds and leaves are still closed and covered by fine silvery-white downy hairs, the leaves are delicately hand-plucked. They then undergo a meticulously monitored drying process where the tea is withered. Tea Forté works directly with these artisan- farmers who tender the delicate process to assure that the white tea that we offer yields an exquisitely subtle tea-drinking experience.
Looking to shore up your immune system's reserves during cold and flu season? Herbal teas are a simple and natural elixir to calm nerves and boost defenses. Try this twist on a Hot Toddy, featuring Tea Forté’s Ginger Lemongrass blend. This tea’s restorative powers come from its precise combination of ginger, lemongrass, licorice, spearmint, and lemon, each of which benefits the immune system in its own distinct way.
