White tea

(Silver needle)


White tea is a lightly oxidized tea grown and is named because of the fine silvery-white hairs that present a whitish appearance.   It is quite rare and expensive.  

 

  • The leaves and buds are allowed to wither in natural sunlight before they are lightly processed to prevent oxidation or further tea processing.  

  • The beverage itself is not white or colorless but pale yellow.

  • It retains peak levels of antioxidants.

  • Its downy white leaves impart a mild, gentle flavor reminiscent of sweet melon or honey.
