White tea is lightly oxidized. Harvested leaves are placed in the sun to wither on rounded bamboo plates. Withering process eventually dries the fresh leaves which are then hand sorted for stalks and impurities. It is cultivated throughout China, but originated in Fujian, China There are now many varieties of white tea, and it is also being produced in India and Sri Lanka.

The flavor of white tea can be very sweet, earthy and smooth on the pallet. It is best prepared in a porcelain teapot or a gaiwan. Because of the light oxidation, white tea is very high in antioxidants and can be a choice tea for relaxation and wellness.
