White tea is known to be one of the most delicate tea kinds because it’s so minimally reused. White tea is gathered before the tea factory’s leaves open completely, when the young buds are still covered by fine white hairs, hence the name “white” tea.
When brewed, it’s generally light gold in color with a flowery scent. Depending on the type of white tea, the flavor can range from woody to sweet to flowery with light, gooey notes. When brewed duly, it’s generally less bitter and assertive than black tea.
