White tea is the least processed, yet most expensive of all tea types. It is produced in the simplest possible way - picked and dried.
White tea comes from the delicate, unripe bud and/or leaves. Due to the minimal processing, white tea retains catechins (antioxidants) and can also have a high caffeine content because it consists of fresh shoots. White tea has the same healthy and good properties as green tea. Since white tea is harvested with young leaves, they do not contain the same amount of chlorophyll as green tea and therefore do not taste as vegetal.
