What is white tea?

White tea is an exquisite variety of tea made from the youngest and most tender buds and leaves of the Camellia sinensis tea plant. It is grown primarily in the Fujian and Yunnan provinces of China, as well as in some other regions of Asia.

Compared to green or black tea, white tea undergoes minimal processing, allowing it to retain its characteristic light color and delicate flavors.

Is white tea healthy?

White tea is not only a delight for the palate, but also a treasure trove of health benefits. Due to its high content of antioxidants and polyphenols, white tea can help protect the body from free radicals and strengthen the immune system.

These health-promoting compounds can also reduce inflammation, support the cardiovascular system, and slow the aging process. Additionally, white tea contains a small amount of caffeine, making it a gentle alternative to caffeinated beverages. It provides a mild energy source that gives you a gentle energy boost.

Are there different types of white tea?

There are several different varieties of white tea, each with its own unique characteristics and flavor profiles. Some of the most popular varieties include Silver Needle, Pai Mu Tan (White Peony Tea), and Shou Mei (Long Brow). Each variety has its own texture, flavors, and nuances, which can range from floral and sweet to fruity and slightly woody.

How to prepare white tea properly

Making white tea is relatively simple. Here are some basic steps to get the most out of your white tea:

1. Use fresh, filtered water and heat it to about 75 - 85 °C. Water that is too hot can affect the delicate taste of the white tea.

2. Add an appropriate amount of white tea leaves to your Hario tea bomb. A general rule of thumb is about 1 teaspoon of tea per cup.

3. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and let your infusion steep for 2 - 3 minutes.
