White Teas are the most delicate of all teas because they are the least processed of all teas They are appreciated for their subtlety, complexity, and natural sweetness. They are hand-processed using the youngest shoots of the tea plant, with little to no oxidation. When brewed correctly, with a very low temperature and a short steeping time, White tea gives the most delicate flavors and aromas. The nuances are gentle, even elusive, evoking fresh flavors like bamboo or asparagus or earthier elements like almonds. Aromas tend towards subtle floral bouquets. White teas can vary in their levels of caffeine.
