White Teas are the world's rarest variety. Two leaves and a bud are gathered just before sunrise so that they still have some moisture on their surface. Seven days of picking are needed to make just eight kilos of White Tea. This tea’s early origins are indicated by the simplicity of the processing. The leaves are slowly withered, then lightly fermented without a final firing. White Teas are very high in anti-oxidants and naturally low in caffeine.
