White Whisper

$25.00$200.00

An exceptionally rare white tea from the Nyeri region of Kenya. Grown on the Southwest slopes of Mount Kenya by small micro farmers, this extraordinary white tea is anything but typical from a country that specializes in CTC grade (made for tea bags) black teas. Comprised only of the choicest new buds, this tea is light and fresh, but surprisingly bold. Notes of peach and apricot linger above notes of toasted barley. This tea is quickly gaining recognition as one of the world’s preeminent white teas.

An exceptionally rare white tea from the Nyeri region of Kenya.  Grown on the Southwest slopes of Mount Kenya by small micro farmers, this extraordinary white tea is anything but typical from a country that specializes in CTC grade (made for tea bags) black teas.  Comprised only of the choicest new buds, this tea is light and fresh, but surprisingly bold.  Notes of peach and apricot linger above notes of toasted barley.  This tea is quickly gaining recognition as one of the world’s preeminent white teas.

Unlike many other tea growing regions throughout the world, Kenya’s climate allows for year-round harvests. In countries like China and Japan and even in parts of India, low temperatures and shorter days cause the tea plant to remain dormant throughout the winter. Kenya’s proximity to the equator allows for harvests to continue throughout the year virtually uninterrupted, with the exception of monsoon season.

White Whisper closely resembles Silver Needle in appearance, but it has a significantly bolder flavor.  One of our customers once described it as “Silver Needle on steroids” and we agree!

Because White Whisper contains only the downy new buds of the tea plant, it often contains more caffeine and has a significantly higher antioxidant content than most teas.

We receive White Whisper in small quantities and often sell out quickly.  If it is listed as out of stock, don’t hesitate to contact us at the shop to get on the waiting list for the next shipment.

The delicate nature of white teas require that they be paired with equally subtle dishes or risk being over-powered.  Try serving White Whisper with chicken or scallops.

We recommend steeping White Whisper for 5 minutes at 170°.  Make sure to get your money’s worth out of this extraordinary tea by re-steeping the same leaves 3 to 5 times.  It does beautifully with multiple infusions.
