Called ‘Bai Cha’ in Chinese, traditionally made from the newly sprouted buds of the tea plant. These buds are covered by a silvery down which turns white in color when the tea leaves are dried. White tea provides a light, clear brew that is mildly sweet and vegetal in taste. White tea is uniquely processed. The leaves are layered and allowed to dry; not rolled or cooked.
