This tea is the rarest and most delicate type of tea. It is plucked by hand within two days of the first buds maturing. Once gathered, the tea buds are steamed, allowing the natural moisture to evaporate before being dried in the open air. Most white tea is grown in limited quantity in the Fujian Province of China. White tea contains comparable antioxidants to green tea, but it undergoes less processing. It has extremely low caffeine content. When brewed, it yields a pale yellow liquor in the cup and it has a light, sweet flavor with a clean finish.
