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.
The Golden Leaf Awards is Australia’s premier tea awards event. This exciting competition offers you an incredible opportunity to get your unique and beautiful teas out into the Australasian marketplace, and recognised globally.
These awards focus on Australasia, however we also welcome participation from the global tea industry (however submitted teas must be commercially available within Australia). The Golden Leaf Awards winners will be announced at the Australian Tea Expo, 10 - 12 September.
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.
Participants in the Golden Leaf Awards will also gain free entry into the Australian International Tea Expo 2018. Please note that this offer is limited to one free entry per company, regardless of the number of Golden Leaf Awards submissions made. A participant must simply state that they are a Golden Leaf entrant at the Expo gate, and then provide photo ID to confirm their identity.

Entries for the Awards closes on the 31st of July. All Golden Leaf Awards materials for ALL categories must be submitted by the 6th of August 2018. This includes postage time.
