White Tea And The Benefits

The most delicate of teas, White tea is known for its sweetness and subtlety. The leaves are picked and harvested before they open fully, when the buds are still covered by fine white hair (hence the name). No oxidation is allowed, and the leaves are steamed and dried. Because of its minimal processing, White tea has considerably less caffeine than other tea.

Health Benefits
White tea provides numerous benefits to your health. Not only does it protect against cancer with its antioxidants and flavanoids (which inhibit the growth of cancer cells), it protects the entire circulatory system by improving artery function, lowering blood pressure, and thinning the blood. White tea also lowers cholesterol, promotes healthy skin, and builds strong bones and teeth. It is also a natural killer of bacteria.
