White tea is minimally processed and is second only to green tea. It is made from the unopened buds and occasionally the first shoot of the plant. Usually, it’s made from the first flush tea when a tea plant is at its prime growth state.
To make a white tea, the leaves are only withered and lightly rolled. As a result, the beverage is extremely light, pale-colored or blush-toned and characterized by mellow floral-fruity flavors.
