White Tea is different from Green Tea (or Oolong, Black, and Pu-Erh Tea) due to the difference in processing, caffeine content, and health benefits. While these various teas are all cultivated from the Camellia Sinensis tea plant, the classification of each tea is based on the method in which the leaves are processed. Unlike Black and Green teas, White Tea is the least processed; it is first withered under direct sunlight, followed by indoor processing resulting in a "hairy" surface of the buds, which is not seen in green teas. White Tea contains less caffeine than Green Tea, and may reduce the risk of heart disease. Some research has shown the benefits of White Tea in reducing the risk of diabetes - related effects. Among the health benefits are its ability to protect against osteoporosis and anti-aging properties.
