White Tea

White tea is the least processed of all tea categories. The young buds of the Camellia Sinensis plant are covered in silver-white hair when plucked and the young leaves are gently handled and dried in the sun for a few days. Through this long process, some may lightly oxidize into green-brown leaves. The origin of white tea is in Fujian Province in China. These teas are not rolled or shaped, preserving the shape of the leaf. They produce a light-yellow liquor with honey sweet aroma and floral notes.
