What is white tea?
White tea is one of the most delicate tea varieties because it is so minimally processed. It is harvested before the tea plant’s leaves open fully, when the young buds are still covered by fine white hairs, hence the name “white” tea.
How is white tea different from black or green tea?
White tea is made from the buds and unfurled leaves from the newest growth on the tea plant. The leaves are handpicked then quickly and meticulously dried, so they are not allowed to oxidize (be exposed to oxygen) as long as leaves plucked for green or black tea production. This minimal processing and low oxidation results in some of the most delicate and freshest tea available.

Loose leaf tea: Steep 2 grams (about 1 tablespoon) loose leaf tea in 8 oz. of just boiled water for 2 to 3 minutes. For iced tea, steep 4 grams (about 2 tablespoons) in 8 oz. of just boiled water, then pour over ice.
Pyramid tea bags: Steep 1 pyramid bag in 8 oz. of just boiled water for 2 to 3 minutes. For iced tea, steep 2 pyramid bags in 8 oz. of just boiled water, then pour over ice.
White tea is generally thought to be lower in caffeine than green or black tea. A cup of Teatulia White Tea contains about two-thirds less caffeine than a cup coffee.
