In theory, white teas are the easiest to make - just wither and dry! But the secret to good white tea holds a lot more than meets the eye-it depends where and when the leaves have grown and how exactly is the process made. For example, only the most delicate part of the tea bush is plucked, a bud and one leaf, making it a very resource demanding and thorough job.
The 2019 spring flush white teas are sweet and mild, great for drinking both hot and iced!
Cold Spring is not available separately anymore this season, you can still get it via the Renegade Collection. A fresh and light white tea, to release its full character it demands a bit longer steeping time. The aroma is fresh and vegetal, with notes of citrus. You can easily use the same leaves for 3-4 brews to enjoy the delicate and sweet white tea with very light astringency and sweet citrus aftertaste.
Price per cup: 0,65 EUR and that's with just one steep ;)
All Renegade Tea Estate teas are grown under the Georgian sun, chemical-free and without any concentrated fertilizers. All of the harvests are done by hand- people from nearby villages plucking only the finest leaves. In addition to harvesting from Renegade plantations, we also cooperate with some nearby farmers. All of the teas we sell are produced in our own small factory by either Tomas or Hannes, experimenting with different recipes, trying our best to bring out the greatest tastes of Georgian tea.

White tea is something that, similarly to oolong tea, you don't really find in Georgia. As the traditional tea is black tea, then the soft, mild taste of white is not something that would be popular among locals. But we believe that Renegade Tea Estate plantations with its mixture of cultivars make a great basis to experiment with different kind of white teas- traditional spring whites and also not so ordinary summer batches. Our tea fields that have been chemical-free for nearly 30 years are ideal for delicate, pure tastes that white teas hold.
