White tea is the least processed tea, as the leaves are allowed to wither for a long period of time without any physical interferance with the structure of the leaf before they are slowly dried in low temperature. Traditionally this would mean sun-drying. During this process light oxidation occurs, therefore, white tea can be classified as a lightly oxidised tea.In general terms white tea offers refreshing and mild flavours, often reminiscent of hay and honey. Abundance of ani-oxidants is another typical quality. We have selected some fine examples of this tea family ranging from teas for day-to-day consumption to some rare gems for special occasions.
