Treat yourself to the delicate aromas of a White Tea blend.
White tea is tea made from new growth buds and young leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis.The leaves are steamed to inactivate oxidation, and then dried. White tea therefore retains the high concentrations of catechins which are present in fresh tea leaves. The buds may also be shielded from sunlight during growth to reduce formation of chlorophyll. For white tea, the little buds that form on the plant are covered with silver hairs that give the young leaves a white appearance. White tea is steamed and dried almost immediately after harvesting (sometimes before even leaving the fields). This method of minimal processing may account for white tea’s higher than normal medical benefits.
