New Tea on the Block

I recieved an email from The Republic of Tea announcing their new line of White Tea.

"Once reserved for the cups of emperors and nobility, this magnificent high mountain China White Tea still remains one of the rarest of all teas. The tender white downy buds are painstakingly hand-plucked, only two days of the year, right before the leaf opens. So small is the yield, so high is the demand, that it is one of the world's most expensive teas. We have procured this season's harvest to take advantage of a new manufacturing technique allowing us to offer White Tea in our signature round, unbleached tea bags. White Tea is the most minimally processed of all tea varietals. Modern research shows that White Tea retains the highest level of disease preventative antioxidants known as polyphenols."

They have yummy flavors like pineapple guava, honeydew melon and orange blossom, so I imagine I will be trying it.

If it is as good as A Perfect World White Tea Skin Guardian that I am addicted to from Origins, I am sure I will enjoy it. Guardian is more expensive than I like to admit but it gives my skin a silky texture and it smells wonderful. I can't make it through the morning without that lovely fragrance. I know, I know... one goes on your face and one you drink, but at this point white tea is sounding like a magic elixer to me.
