White tea is different from all other teas. After the leaves and buds are plucked, they are air dried to prevent oxidation before they are packed. Primarily grown in the Fujian Province of China, White tea is also known as Silvery Tip Pekoe, Fujian White or China White. White reigns as one of the world’s highest quality teas because only the unopened buds and the youngest, most tender tips of the tea bush are chosen. The fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds is what gives this tea its name. Twinings Pure White tea is hand-picked in the spring to yield a delicately smooth tea with a light, natural taste.
The Twinings Story In 1706 Thomas Twining began selling fine tea from an English storefront in The Strand, London. Today, Twinings still sells some of the world's best teas from the original store and in more than 100 countries throughout the world.
