White tea is much rarer than some other varieties of tea and this is one of the reasons it is so highly prized. It is only available for picking during a very short period every year and the processes behind its production are kept a closely guarded secret.
The widely documented health benefits of white tea also contribute to its popularity. White tea is recognised for its powerful detoxifying qualities and also for its high concentration of antioxidants. This makes it the natural choice for people who value tea for its impact on their well-being as well as its unique flavour.
