White tea is the purest form of Camellia sinensis, the tea plant, as it is the least processed. The choicest of young tea buds and leaves are carefully hand-plucked, undergo withering, and are then dried. During the withering process, the tea leaves undergo some oxidation, creating beautifully sweet, delicate, fragrant aromas and flavors in the white tea. White tea is rich in antioxidants and an excellent choice for relaxing and unwinding. Low in caffeine and an ideal afternoon pick-me-up, our loose leaf white teas will surely be prized in your tea collection.
