White Teas come from the same plant as black and green teas - but gets it's name from the silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the plant. White teas are not rolled or processed to oxidize, instead they are picked and air dried.
Flavor Notes: The flavor of white tea is a slightly sweet, lighter flavor.
Caffeine: Can be labeled as low or mild.
Steeping: White teas are more fragile than green or black teas and thus white tea should be steeped in water that is not hotter than 140-160 degrees farenheit. Remove tea bag or ball after 2-3 minutes. Bitter tea is tea that has burned in too hot of water.
