Perhaps first produced during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), white tea was the preferred tea of the Chinese royal court.
White tea is so named because the silver fuzz that’s till covers the immature buds and leaves after they are picked turns white when they are dried. The leaves are steamed quickly after harvesting to prevent oxidation of polyphenols and then dried.
White tea contains high level of antioxidants because the leaves and buds are steamed and dried immediately after harvesting, locking in their antioxidant qualities. Because of this kind of processing, white tea contains far less caffeine than other types of tea.
