What is white tea?

White tea has similar skin-friendly properties to green tea . However, it has even more antioxidants.

White tea, green tea and black tea are all made from the same tea plant - Camellia Sinensis . The only difference between the tea types is in how they are processed. And it is precisely here that the composition of the active ingredients changes.

Green tea Green tea: The most studied antioxidant
Black tea Black tea: Why you should also use it in skin care

White tea: cultivation and processing

With white tea, only the young leaves and closed buds of the tea plant (Camellia Sinensis) are harvested. The leaves are wilted in baskets or on wilting mats at 25-26 °C. They are then dried again at 100-130 °C and then a second time at 130 °C. The harvesting process of white tea is extremely complex. This short and gentle processing means that a large proportion of the vitamins and nutrients are retained in the end. This means that white tea is even richer in antioxidants than green tea. The highest quality of white tea is silver needle tea.
