White Tea is an unfermented, non oxidized tea, which results in a paler yellowish colour compared to green or black tea. Produced in small quantities, only the youngest leaves of white tea, still covered with short white hair, are carefully selected and picked just before the new buds open, for a few days at the beginning of springtime. The leaves are carefully steamed and dried and therefore they are essentially unaltered. The result is a purer and more natural tea extract. White tea is reported to have a greater concentration of phenolic components than green tea because polyphenols are oxidised or destroyed to a lesser extent during processing. Therefore it is reported that white tea may have the strongest anti-cancer potential of all teas. Tannins from tea leaves have anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and radical scavenging characteristics.
