The delicate and intriguing white tea is a myth and a mystery. It is unbinding and fierce. It is pure good taste that lingers. Carefully harvested by hand for a limited time each year, the young unopened buds of camellia sinensis, with infant white fur on them, characterize white tea. These careful processes are responsible for its delicate flavor, sensational infusion, and sweet finish. White tea is the least processed of all the types of teas.
