What is white tea?

White tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant like black tea, green tea and oolong tea. It is one of the five types of tea that are called true teas. Before the white tea leaves are opened, the buds are harvested for the production of white tea. These buds are usually covered with tiny white hairs, which give the tea its name. White tea is mainly harvested in the Fujian province of China, but there are also producers in Sri Lanka, India, Nepal and Thailand.

One of the differences in the production process of each true tea is the amount of time the leaves are allowed to oxidize. As mentioned, white tea is the most minimally processed of the true teas and therefore does not undergo a lengthy oxidation process.


Because white tea is minimally processed, it has a delicate flavor profile with a smooth finish and a pale yellow color. It has a slightly sweet taste. When properly brewed, it does not have any bold or bitter taste. There are several different varietals, which have fruity, vegetal, spicy and floral notes.

Properties and Benefits of White Tea

Improves the health of your skin

White tea can help you achieve an even complexion thanks to its antiseptic and antioxidant properties. Since acne is often caused by pollution and free radical buildup, drinking a cup of white tea once or twice a day can clear up your skin. White tea contains high amounts of phenols, which can strengthen both collagen and elastin, giving a smoother, more youthful appearance to the skin. These two proteins are vital for creating strong skin and preventing wrinkles and can be found in a variety of skin care products.

May help prevent cancer

Studies have shown the strong connection between real teas and the potential to prevent or treat cancer. While studies are inconclusive, the health benefits of drinking white tea are largely attributed to the antioxidants and polyphenols in tea. The antioxidants in white tea may help build RNA and prevent the mutation of genetic cells that leads to cancer.

Weight Loss

Obesity is a major contributor to shorter life expectancy and weight loss is increasingly one of the top priorities for people. Drinking white tea can help you achieve your weight loss goals by helping your body absorb nutrients more efficiently and lose weight more easily by speeding up metabolism. The catechins found in white tea can also speed up digestive processes and help with weight loss.

Hair Health

White tea is not only good for the skin, but it can also help establish healthy hair. The antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate has been shown to improve hair growth and prevent premature hair loss. EGCG has also shown promise in treating scalp skin diseases caused by bacteria resistant to standard treatments.

White tea also naturally protects against sun damage, which can help prevent hair from drying out in the summer months. White tea can restore hair's natural shine and is best used topically as a shampoo if you're looking to capitalize on shine.

Improves oral health

White tea has high levels of flavonoids, tannins and fluorides that help keep teeth healthy and strong. Fluoride is popularly known as a tool to prevent tooth decay and is often found in toothpastes. Both tannins and flavonoids help prevent plaque buildup that can cause cavities and tooth decay. White tea also has antiviral and antibacterial properties that help keep teeth and gums healthy.

Reduces inflammation

The catechins and polyphenols in white tea have anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve minor aches and pains. The catechins found in white tea helped with faster muscle recovery and less muscle damage. White tea also improves circulation and provides oxygen to the brain and organs. Because of this, white tea is effective in treating minor headaches and aches and pains from exercising.

Improving heart health

Having a healthy heart means living a longer, fuller life. With everything from diet and smoking to environmental factors contributing to heart health, it's important to take steps to prevent chronic disease. White tea helps protect healthy heart function and prevent diseases such as blood clots, strokes and heart attacks.

Because white tea is the least processed of the true teas, it also contains the highest amount of antioxidants. The catechins in white tea may help lower blood pressure, improve circulation and reduce the risk of heart disease. The antioxidants in white tea have also been shown to reduce cholesterol levels, especially bad LDL cholesterol.
