White tea derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which give the plant a whitish appearance.
White tea, like black and green tea, is made from the Camellia sinensis plant and contains polyphenols, a set of phytonutrients that are thought to be responsible for the health effects of tea.
As the leaves are steamed and pressed into cakes, they are suitable for long-term storage and acquire smooth flavor over time.
The selection of raw material in white tea manufacture is extremely stringent; only the plucking of young tea leaves with much fine hair can produce good-quality white tea of a high pekoe value.
Popular types of white tea: Shou Mei, Silver Needle tea(Bai Hao Yin Zhen), Bai Mudan (white peony).
