    I know we can have black and green tea, but what bout white tea? I don;t mean white as in adding milk, but leaf tea that is 'white tea'. It uses a different part of the plant I think??

    Is that safe to have? Only reason I wonder is because there is a flower on the front of the box and I know we aren;t allowed flowers in our teas?

    Anyone know?

    Thanks!!

    White tea is made from the fresh buds of the tea plant so I'm sure it will be fine. And a nice change! I also like the rooibos tea, which is lovely without milk.

    Whilst on tea, if I drink peppermint tea, does the water I use count to my 4 litres

    Rooibos is a fantastic tea. 100% caffeine free too. Makes a great iced tea type drink if sweetened with water flavouring. Yummmy.

    But white tea? That's news to me. Must search for & try it.

    Rooibos is sometimes called Redbush tea.

    Not sure about the vanilla though
