About Green Sanctuary: White

Like many of the teas from Green Sanctuary, this unusual Taiwanese white tea rewards the open-minded.

Harvested from purple tea leaves in Pinglin by Buddhist monks, this experimental tea is a departure from other white teas in taste and character.

Green Sanctuary: White Tea carries savory notes of black pepper and seagrass. For all its boldness, its finish is light.
