About Darjeeling White Tea

Darjeeling white tea is white tea produced in the Darjeeling region of India.

White tea makes up only a very small portion of tea produced in Darjeeling, which historically produced only black teas. Because it tends to only be produced as small batches of single-estate, single-harvest teas, Darjeeling white tea can be among the most expensive of white teas.

Darjeeling white tea is generally regarded as a style of its own, and is usually not categorized in the same way as the various styles of white tea from China. However, Darjeeling does produce some white teas in the style of Chinese white teas, such as silver needle.

RateTea only classifies teas under "Darjeeling white tea" that do not conform to other existing styles of white tea. However, in many respects, other styles of white tea produced in Darjeeling may resemble other Darjeeling white teas more than they resemble their Chinese counterparts.

You can also use our site to browse all white teas produced in Darjeeling; as of this page's last update, we only listed 2 silver needle teas not classified in the main Darjeeling white tea category. When browsing tea companies' websites to locate these teas, keep in mind that some companies list first flush white teas under the "first flush" category.
