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.

      You definitely need to steep this one longer than the instructions tell you to. I wish I had the ability to try my sample again, but having steeped it much longer.

      A very subtle white tea, best when steeped for a while!

      It's not flavorless, but you are gonna have to seep for a while. It also does not fare well if you try to add anything to it. Still it's nice and I can drown it without worrying about my insomnia.

      This is a decent tea but the flavor is very weak and doesn’t have much flavor

      Pretty weak. It's alright if you need white tea immediately, but definitely go with loose leaf alternatives.

      I needed to brew a little longer to get the flavor, but I liked it.

      Although this was one of the first white teas I've ever tried, it has not held up well. It is flavorless

      I couldn't tell if I had brewed it enough or not, tried multiple times and very little flavor. I've discovered that if you are looking for a white tea, best to go with a loose tea from a specialty shop. These store varieties just don't have the flavor.
