What is white tea
White tea is the first tender shoot of the tea bush and a delicacy, harvesting only a few days in early spring. Tea leaves are not picked on days of rain if the dew is not completely gone or if there is frost in the soil. White tea differs from both green and black tea in the process that follows the actual picking of the tea leaves. The fresh tea leaves undergo a natural drying process.
The white tea, like the green tea, is unfermented, which means that the tea leaves do not undergo the oxygenation process which causes the color of the tea leaves to darken. Unlike other teas, the tea leaves are rolled very rarely. Thus, the characteristics of most white qualities are that they are very large-leaved.
