White Tea

White teas have remained in their natural state.

Traditionally, white teas are specialty of the Chinese province of Fujian. Of all the tea families, it is the white teas that undergo the least elaborate manufacturing process, and yet it is also the white teas that are some of the most delicate of all. 

White teas are made with leaves left in their natural state. They undergo just two processes: withering and firing. In order to bring about a moisture loss in line with other teas, the leaves undergo a much longer period of withering varying from 48 to 60 hours. 

Due to heat and humidity, withering in the open air is impossible. After withering, the leaves are immediately dried in large pans over fire or on shelves of a hot-air dryer for approximately half an hour. T

here are two main types of white tea: Silver Needle and Bai Mu Dan. White teas are a specialty of China's Fujian region.
