White Tea is the least processed tea. The leaves simply picked, withered and dried. They are not oxidized, so they retain even more of their natural antioxidants and may contain higher amounts of polyphenols. Many people find the subtle sweet flavors of white teas provide an exquisite tea drinking experience as well.
