The production of white tea is unlike all others. The leaves withered and dried. They are not rolled, crushed or cut. Sometimes, they are plucked before the leaf buds open. This special handling results in a very mild tasting and pale liquor.
Since white tea has a delicate body, it should not be taken with sugar or milk. It can be infused several times and is a wonderful evening tea. Authentic white teas are produced only in the Fujian Province of China.
