White Tea is a rare, much sought-after plant grown in China in the Fujian mountains. Drinking White Tea was once considered the route to immortality. Its silvery-white leaf buds are harvested during the first days of spring. Unlike other teas, White Tea does not undergo fermentation—it simply withers and is dried. This simple procedure preserves all of the antioxidant qualities of the leaf.
White Tea extract is used in cosmetics to fight the harmful effects of free radicals.
