Cultivating with natural farming methods, Natural Spirit White Tea is made of freshly hand-plucked buds and leaves. The tea plants are grown in alpine tea zones at a locally-certified biological tea farm*. Natural Spirit White Tea is minimally processed. It is withered and dried naturally with no fermentation. Therefore, it preserves the natural, fresh favor of healthy whole-leaf tea. This fluffy modern-style white tea yields a delicate, pale gold liquor with a distinct morning dew and sweet aroma. It tastes delicate, subtle, and soothing with a slight natural sweetness. At any time, Natural Spirit White Tea replenishes you with rich natural antioxidants with little caffeine.
* Grown without synthetic chemical substances and without genetically engineered seeds.
White teaand green tea often are grouped together because they have comparable levels of antioxidants and catechins (Unachukwu et al. 2009, Abstract). White tea is often composed of young buds and leaves, and minimally processed. Similar to green tea, white tea is rich in antioxidants with small amount of caffeine. The classic leaf styles of white tea are sword or twisted-needle. The modern-styles can be sword or open-leaf.
