White tea is the tea type that undergoes no fermentation. Its drying and evaporation process is also very short. White tea is made from selected leaves harvested before fully blossoming.
It is called white tea because at the time of picking, leaf sprouts are still enclosed by very soft white hairs. Due to this short process, the content of catechin in white tea is the highest, and it can deter free radicals more effectively than other types and function as antioxidant in the body.White tea is known as the god and goddess of tea as it is picked from the best leaf sprouts.
