White tea leaves are barely processed, very light and refined, making them one of the purest representation of tea as we know it.
While it’s true that all teas contain polyphenols (micronutrients which have antioxidant activity) White Teas come out on top. Since White Teas are closest to tea’s natural state, they have a higher level of polyphenols, which protects them from sun damage. Each tea bud springs into a bright green and fades into a lighter almost silver-looking color, and ultimately brews into light yellow in your cup.

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 conditions. Among the health benefits are its ability to protect against osteoporosis and its anti-aging properties.
