Definition: White tea is a tea made from the buds (and sometimes also the leaves) of the tea plant. It undergoes minimal processing and retains hair-like fibers found on young buds and leaves. It typically has a delicate, nuanced flavor profile. Many flavored white teas now exist, in part because of its reputation for being high in antioxidants. Popular unflavored white teas include classic white teas Silver Needle and White Peony, as well as newer white teas from Darjeeling (India) and Sri Lanka.
