Originally from China, white tea is the least processed of all the six tea categories. As the best white teas come from prized harvests consisting almost entirely of buds (the youngest leaves of the tea plant hold the most nutrients), white tea is highly is celebrated for its delicate flavour profile, along with many health benefits.
Harvested once a year in the Spring, the buds are plucked just before the leaf opens on the stem and are dried in the sun to lock in colour and flavour. The chlorophyll does not mature in the bud and that gives the tea its “white” appearance.
White tea brews to a pale, golden liquor with a fresh, delicate flavour. But beware of the wolf in lamb’s clothing! Many people associate the colour white with being pure and assume that white tea will contain little or no caffeine. All teas made from the tea plant contain a certain amount of caffeine. A more detailed explanation of white tea can be found in our magazine article “A beginners guide to white tea“.
