  • Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis

    White tea is made from immature tea leaves that are picked shortly before the buds have fully opened from the Camellia sinensis plant. The tea takes its name from the silver fuzz that still covers the buds, which turns white when the tea is dried.

    Tea leaves destined to be sold as white tea undergo even less processing than green tea leaves. Instead of air-drying, the unwithered leaves are merely steamed.

    Leaving tea leaves so close to their natural state means that white tea contains more polyphenols, the powerful anti-oxidant that fights and kills cancer-causing cells, than any other type of tea.

    A 2004 study at Pace University concluded that white tea can help your body's immune system fight off viruses and dangerous infection-causing bacteria. The same study concluded that fluoride-rich white tea helps prevent the growth of dental plaque, the chief cause of tooth decay.
