Yunnan Akha Pu'Er White Tea (Old Tree)
White tea is made from the Camellia sinensis plant.
Its leaves and buds are picked just before they are fully open when covered in fine white hairs. This is where white tea gets its name.
Green tea and black tea are also made from the Camellia sinensis plant. However, different processing methods give them unique flavours and aromas.
White tea is the least processed of the three teas. Because of this, it retains a high amount of antioxidants.
This is why studies have linked white tea with many health benefits. For example, it may help reduce the risk of heart disease, combat skin ageing and even help with weight loss.
