Sunnyside's White Pomegranate tea is a refreshing and uplifting tea everyone can enjoy. 

What is it? 
White tea is made from immature tea leaves picked shortly before the buds have fully opened. The tea takes its name from the silver fuzz that still covers the buds, which turn white when the tea is dried.

Sunnyside's White Pomegranate Tea is grown in the Fujian province of China - an important area in the production of White Tea.

When should I drink it?

Why drink it?

Sunnyside's White Pomegranate tea comes from the immature leaves and delicate buds which are allowed to oxidize naturally.
