tea 101: white tea

The name "white tea" derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which gives the plant a whitish appearance. White tea undergoes the least processing of any "true" tea. Tea buds are picked before they are even ripe and opened. They are sun-dried and that's it! There is no rolling or oxidation. White tea is produced in smaller quantities relative to other types of tea.
