At TEALEAVES we source our teas and botanicals from the world’s tier-1 gardens. The fuller the leaves, the more robust and complex the palate. Whether from a single-estate or a combination, we carefully source to curate blends that are the very best expression of terroir. We bring the finest teas, flowers and herbs to our blending center, and meticulously cup out each ingredient, searching for the ultimate palate and nuanced complexity. The best harvests are sent to us as samples.
To make the perfect cup of tea, please refer to the back of each tin for steeping instructions! This white tea can be steeped multiple times - infuse for 3 minutes, followed by a second steeping for 4 minutes 30 seconds, and subsequent steepings to taste.
We have been the blender of choice for five-star hotels and Michelin chefs worldwide. And now, you. Blending is at the core of our philosophy.

A true white tea, hand-picked, hand-selected, meticulously perfumed, and then sorted twice (by size) in the mountainous Fuding, Fujian Province.
Scented seven times in the imperial custom, this premier grade of white tea, comprised entirely of the finest fragrant handpicked top leaves and buds, is covered with silvery white down. Its composition is both white and light green leaves with exquisite subtle cup. A few of leaves are selected and deftly hand-rolled into a tight pearl, sealing the sweet scent deep within the leaves.
The jasmine blossoms are picked at dawn when the petals are still tightly closed. The scenting is done in the cool of the evening when the blossoms open, releasing their intoxicating scent. The blossoms are heaped in piles next to the drying tealeaves, which absorb the fragrance of the jasmine. This process is repeated up to seven times for the most prized jasmine teas.
When submerged in hot water, these hand-rolled fragrant pearls unfurl seductively in your cup, releasing their enchanting jasmine perfume. The rolled shape helps prevent oxidation (loss of precious essential oils and flavors) and ensures longer optimal maturation. Make in a glass teapot for optimum enjoyment. Best made with reverse osmosis water (with low mineral content) to appreciate the soft-mouth feel.
