Can somebody out there tell me what is white tea? Almost everywhere you

white and the other teas. Help please!


Hi,

White tea basically comes from the same plant - Camellia Sinensis. The difference is it undergoes minimum processing compared to other types of teas. It is harvested before the leaves are completely open the buds remain covered in white hairs. This is how it gets the name white tea. They are also not oxidized, making it the freshest tea.

If you are looking for white tea online, visit Halmari tea. You get premium quality tea at a very reasonable rate there. Buy their white tea here - https://www.halmaritea.co.uk/teas/ha...ite-loose-tea/

White tea may refer to one of several styles of tea which generally feature young or minimally processed leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant.
