White tea is the lightest in flavor and color of all types of tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant. The leaves are hand-picked only in the morning when the buds are open, then allowed to lightly oxidized and carefully dry in the Sun. This process allows for the highest count of antioxidants with the least amount of machine processing. It offers an earthy and fresh flavor, with floral notes. Contains about half as much caffeine as coffee at only 40mg per cup. Can be enjoyed hot or over ice for a refreshing pick-me-up.
