White Teas are so-called because of the downy white hairs on the bud. The tea usually comprises the bud and the first 2 leaves. Once carefully picked the leaves and buds are dried in the sun or a warm drying room.
The brew they produce typically has a characteristic pale, white-wine colour with a soft, subtle flavour. Antioxidants are especially high and so is the price due to the intense nature of farming, picking and production of this queen of all teas.
