White Tea (白茶)

White Tea was likely the first tea processed and consumed that was not simply raw tea leaves. Typically, white tea is picked from the tea plant (bush/tree), then dried under shade, sun, moon, etc. Once the leaves are dry, the tea processing is complete! White tea has the least amount of processing, and therefore the quality of the tea is more dependent on the quality of the original tea leaves in relation to other categories of tea.
