White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

Oh hi,

White tea is the type of tea that I have the least experience in. To this date, maybe I've had less than 10? The majority coming from China, in particular the Yunnan province.

Of course every tea is different, but how different does it get?

Could we propose a list of white teas to try from around the world that would speak to the style of the region or highlight extraordinary cultivars? Teas which are different enough from each other to create a spectrum of "flavors you may encounter with white tea" that are not absolute 1 offs that only 1 producer is making in the far edges of the tea world.
