Chinese White Tea

White tea is produced mainly in Zhenghe and Fuding, which are parts of Fujin Province in China. This tea is one of the six best kinds of Chinese tea. Tea is classified according to the processing criteria. The buds of the tea leaves are bluish white. At first glance the tea looks white, so it is called White Tea. The white-looking buds of White Tea leaves are fluffy, and they seem like the green leaves wear white fluffy blankets. They are so beautifully. White tea is produced by wilting the freshly-picked tea leaves. (The picked leaves are supposed to rest for a while, during which time they become fermented and water contained in the leaves is evaporated.) There are two ways of wilting: One way is that the leaves are wilted by being exposed to the sunlight and the other is they are wilted in a room. White tea is produced simply by getting dried slowly after wilting because there is no process of kneading involved. The rate of fermenting is about 10%, so it is light fermenting. White tea has been long consumed in Guangdong Province in China, Hong Kong and some tropical areas such as Southeast Asia. This tea is supposedly effective in removing extra heat from the body and it is also believed to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and beauty effects. “Baihao Yinzhen”, “Bai Mu Dan", and “Shou me" famously exemplify White Tea.
