White tea is made from the young tea bud. It is plucked just before the leaf opens on the stem and is air-dried to lock in its colour and flavour. The chlorophyll is not mature in this bud and that gives its “white” appearance. Delicate-bodied, one should use more of the large buds to get its full flavour. There is no reason to add milk or sugar to enjoy the simple, pure tea. It has both caffeine and healthy polyphenols.
