Although the colour of tea is not white, it all time golden pale yellow then why did we named this tea ‘White Tea’’? White tea is harvested before the tea plant’s leaves open fully, when the young buds are still covered by fine white hairs, hence the name “white” tea.

White tea is a rare beverage of tea world. White, Black, Green, and Oolong all tea’s comes from the Camellia Sinensis tea plants. But the difference is in the production and processing.

This White tea is a luxury, purely handpicked by Tea2you’s very own specialists at the tea estates to give you nothing less than the royal taste of tea. Our white tea is almost non-oxidized and it is the least processed tea. Instead of being exposed to an artificial heat, the leaves are simply allowed to wither and dry in a carefully controlled environment, which results in the most delicate, fresh-from-the-garden tasting tea. White tea is known to be one of the most delicate tea varieties because it is so minimally processed. White tea is packed with antioxidants, which makes it an incredibly healthy tea. Studies have linked white tea and its components to a variety of impressive health benefits.
