White tea comes from the same plant as green, oolong and black tea – camellia sinensis. White tea is considered a prized tea, harvesting just the buds and youngest leaves then simply withered in the sun and air dried. Only the sweetest buds and baby leaves with the fine downy hairs are plucked. All carefully done by hand so as the leaves are not bruised, which could threaten the flavour and quality. A reason why white teas are more expensive. Processing continues by hand taking 4-5 days on average. Try it - called white tea as the steep is nearly colourless and tastes light and refreshing, a perfect all day tea in the More Tea Bottle or cup.
