Green White is our pure Japanese green tea blended with a pure Chinese white tea. White tea is one of the rarest and most luxurious teas in the world and it is the least processed form of tea in China and India. Young tea leaf buds (not tea leaves but the buds) are picked, and then withered and dried under the sun (or sometimes steamed or fired) to stop oxidization. White tea is an unfermented tea. Because new and tender buds of first flush tea are hand-picked, white tea is rare, precious and expensive. When brewed, its flavor is delicate and subtle. It is lighter and sweeter than green tea, with a light yellow, pale liquor. According to many studies, out of all teas, white tea contains the largest amount of health-promoting antioxidants due to its youthfulness and minimum processing.
