White Tea

A lot of us drink black tea as a matter of course, and we have all heard of green tea, but what about white tea?
In spite of its name, when brewed white tea is pale yellow. Its name derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant Camellia Sinensis , which give the plant a whitish appearance. These buds and unfurled leaves stemming from the newest growth on the tea plant are handpicked and then quickly, meticulously and carefully dried, so the leaves are not able to oxidize as long as the leaves plucked for green or black tea production. This minimal processing and low oxidation regime results in some of the most delicate and freshest tea available. White tea has been said to protect the body against certain diseases, reduce the risk of some cancers and cardiovascular disorders. It can also provide natural antibacterial properties, help with weight loss, and can lower bad cholesterol. A cup of white tea has an average of 15mg of caffeine. I am currently enjoying Lemon and Honey white tea, lovely fragrance and delicate taste ♥
