Definition: White Tea

White tea comes from young tea leaves and unopened buds on tea plants. It is extremely rich in antioxidants (even more potent than green tea), which help to scavenge free radicals and minimize visible signs of aging. White tea tastes similar to green tea but it's a little bit sweeter and more delicate. Also, it actually has more of a pale green color than a white appearance.

It is important to understand that white tea isn't oxidized or bleached. It is processed by the buds withering and air-drying so that none of the nutrients are lost. Well, actually the caffeine level is lower
than in regular tea since the caffeine develops in mature tea leaves.

White tea is becoming more and more popular in beauty products since it's so healthful — and brands such as Origins, Korres, L'Occitane and Neal's Yard have already integrated it into their collections because of its ability to even out skin and help promote new cell turnover.

I love white tea - to drink, anyway. I don't think I have any skincare products that contain it...
