White teas are the least processed of all teas. Traditionally using only the down covered buds of the tea bush, newer versions also use other leaves. The tea is allowed to dry at ambient temperature, thus allowing it to sometimes have more oxidation if the air is more humid. The best has many silvery buds in the tin, and brews into a delicate infusion ranging in color from the palest of liquids to a slightly golden cup. It lends itself well to blending with other delicate additions, such as flower buds or essence.
