This award category is specifically for white teas. White teas are characterised by:
- Delicate flavours and tastes
- Very minute intentional oxidisation
- A light colour both in the dry leaf and the cup.
These awards focus on Australasia, however we also welcome participation from the global tea industry (however submitted teas must be commercially available within Australia).
Winning participants will receive a formal response by mail which confirms their score. Winners will also be provided with a print-ready seal to be used for all promotional materials and packaging.
