White tea is comprised of delicate new buds that are hand plucked, dried, sorted, and allowed to air dry. The taste is mild, slightly earthy and sweet. For those who do not like the taste of green teas yet want the antioxidants, give white tea a try.
Please note that although the taste is light, the white teas can have more caffeine
One rule for white and green teas is to never use boiling water. It is just too hot for the delicate leaf.
This will almost always ensure a decent cup of tea. To make white tea, use ~2 teaspoons of tea per cup.
Pour not-quite-boiling water over the tea and let steep 2-3 minutes.
