What is White Tea?
White teas are the least processed of all teas, most hailing from the Fujian province in China. White teas are picked when young tea buds are tightly enclosed in new leaves. They are then withered to allow the natural moisture to evaporate. This allows the leaves retain a silky, downy quality. When you first drink white tea, it may seem tasteless. However, after a moment you become aware of the subtle sweetness of the tea on your palette. This tea produces a clear to yellowish liquid, that has a soft, clean, and sweet flavor.
