Grown at altitude and prepared according to age old tradition under the guidance of renowned grand Tea Master, Chen Qi Quen, Qi Teas maintain their natural sweetness and high levels of antioxidants.
Qi tea is sourced from tea bushes (camellia sinensis) that grow in small clusters on the mountainsides around the village of Xitou (pronounced Sheetoh).
Unlike mainstream teas, Qi does not come from a plantation, but the tea bushes grow amongst the other native flora of the Yellow Mountains. In that sense, Qi tea really is the most environmentally/ecosystem friendly tea you can buy.
The delicate baby buds and young leaves are hand plucked from the tea bush, producing a lighter, sweeter taste than green tea. Once plucked, the buds and young leaves are carefully processed to retain the high levels of antioxidants and natural sweetness in this beautiful and delicate tea.
It is called white tea because of the fine white hairs that are underneath the newly grown leaf.
