HANDCRAFTING WHITE TEA - FROM FARM TO CUP
Remember that on the farm, tea is a plant. But once the leaves are harvested and steeped in water for drinking, it becomes a beverage.
As a beverage, tea experts consider WHITE TEA as the closest to the natural state of the tea plant since the taste, aroma and overall quality of white tea is retained and not influenced by heat and oxidation such as that of green, yellow, black, wulong or fermented tea. In white tea, even the white, hair-y like structures on the leaves are retained. This is where it gets its name WHITE TEA.
