About Otherwordly

Otherwordly is unique among White teas found in the West. While most White teas hail from Fuding or Zhenghe in Fujian province, this White tea comes from Lincang in Yunnan province.

Although lesser known, our Lincang White tea is unqiue because it is a "Gu Shu" Bai Cha, meaning it is from ancient tea trees that are over a thousand years old. Tea crafted from ancient tea trees produce flavors and sensations that you won't find in plantation produced teas. That's how we gave "Otherworldly" its name &mash; it almost feels like you are drinking a different category of tea because of its ancient leaves!
