Ceylon Vintage Silver Tips, Loose Tea (2 Oz Tin)Harney & Sons
Almost all white teas come from China. However, there are a few white teas made in other regions. This one is made in the island nation of Sri Lanka. In tea tradition and lore this island is known as Ceylon. In the mountains and hills, a few teamakers attempt white tea. They send their pluckers out to scour the fields to find the few plants that make a big bud. This is much harder work than in Fuding, China, where the hills are covered with the tea plants that make white tea.
