White Tea

The highest grade of Chinese white tea is produced by plucking buds before they open, withering them to allow the natural moisture to evaporate and then drying the leaves.  A bud processed this way will have a silvery appearance and will produce a pale, straw-colored liquor that is naturally sweet and soft. If the white tea has leaves along with the buds, the leaves are dried in their natural shapes, creating a mix of light to dark greens.  White tea is very natural and gets its name from the silvery down that covers the buds known as "Hao".
