You need a name!

White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

White tea drinkers unite and come up with a name for those who love whites teas more than any other tea.

Umm...

Beyond the Pale?
The White Company? (OK, that one's a little obscure.)
The Snowbuds? (possibly also a song by Anne Murray!)

Ooh, that's the best I can do when it's midnight and I'm getting sleepy. Sadly, I'm not much of a whitehead myself (yet) so perhaps the inspiration is lacking. Now all I can come up with is stuff like The Silver Needleworkers, which is not only something of a stretch, but also sounds like it could be the name of a Holmesian fan group located somewhere in the Midlands.

Oops, another Conan Doyle reference. Right, it's time for bed...

This thread makes me hear Madonna's "Like a Virgin" in my head... maybe there is a name for the White drinkers in this.

Hahhaha I was just thinking of all of the other horrible names I could think of. Especially if you think about something in conjunction with one of the other tea groups...

Well, I still like White and Nerdy. So there :P

You could even rewrite Yankovic's lyrics and make a tea filk out of it.

When I started this, I thought, what have I unleashed.

White Knights? I guess too masculine?

Hmmm, the white tea lovers are too subtle and sublime to post?

One thing to think about is that this is for White and Yellow, for just white would be a bit easier.

Never Eat Yellow Snow, but tea on the other hand

White and yellow always makes me think of moon and sun... or a mixture of white and yellow roses, my favourite bouquet of all time.

But the only thing that I can think of which is white and yellow simultaneously is an egg :cry:
