White noise is made of half-fermented White Downy Oolong tea from China.
While tea started out as a drink solely for the royalty of China, now that times have moved on it's available to you. A rare, hand-made white tea that is delicate, floral and silky smooth. Draws an amber coloured brew.
Traditional white teas are minimally processed, simply being steamed and dried. This leaves them pure with a mild flavour and up more antioxidants and less caffeine than any other type of tea from the camellia sinensis plant. Our white downy involves a longer withering time, resulting in a slight oxidation of the leaves. This is why White Noise has a more robust flavour and amber cup compared to other white tea.
The hand rolled leaves show silver buds amongst dark olive leaves, and has aromas of sweet hay, maple and honey, which can be re-brewed a number of times. Mild and aromatic, but still yielding a strong body of flavour, this is great brewed hot or cold. A cold brew will bring out the freshness and hay-like notes, while a hot brew will bring out a floral aromatic drink.
A great entry-level tea for people who find green tea too bitter, and enjoy subtle and gentle flavours.
