Silver Yeti Nepalese White Tea is made only from the finest tea buds (no leaves). Bud teas are one of the least processed teas and yet one of the most expensive ones. Why? Typical tea plucking may include the bud but also several leaves. It will take at least 3 times the amount of plucks to get a compatible amount of tea, because of just picking the buds. These teas are also known as Silver Needle White Tea or Silver Tips. The long slender buds full of down are a resemblance of the Himalayan Yeti.
