White tea is derived from the first flush buds grown only in the Fukien Province of China, but now manufactured in India and Sri Lanka, among other places. While the tea is not white in colour, it has got its name due to the silver-coloured, white hair-like picked tea bud. The beverage is pale yellow in colour. It is one of the most expensive teas in the world. The reason for it exorbitant rate is because white tea is plucked in a very short time. White tea is produced from unopened buds of tea shoots. Those buds are withered and dried under special conditions. It is produced in small quantities which is one of the reasons why it is very expensive. Similar to green tea, white tea also has a lot of health benefits. The benefits of this tea can be given to it’s flavonoids as they help in various ways such as improving vascular health which further helps in the prevention of heart diseases.
