Ceylon Tea can be broadly classified into three sections: Ceylon Black Tea, Ceylon Green Tea and Ceylon White Tea. The exquisite Ceylon White Tea, which is also known as Silver Tips, is one of the most expensive brands of tea in the world.
Ceylon White Tea is processed from the freshly sprouted leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, or the tea plant. The buds that are picked for white tea should be covered with dense, silvery hair. It is quite important to pick very young leaves that are just budding.
The leaves are very lightly processed when producing Silver Tips Tea. In fact, the leaves are only dried and not processed further.
