Since the dawn of time, we have known that drinking tea regularly is very beneficial for our health. But not all teas offer similar benefits, even though they come from the same plant, the tea plant, called Camellia Sinensis. But what are the benefits of white tea? According to many studies, the benefits of white tea are undoubtedly the best, compared to all other teas! What makes the difference from one tea to another is the place of production, but it is also necessary to take into account the climatic conditions, the periods of harvest, the parts of the plant which are taken as well as the various treatments which the tea undergoes before its conditioning. There are different varieties of tea: black tea, red tea, green tea, yellow tea, white tea, the latter being the rarest, most precious and richest in polyphenols and particularly in flavonoids, powerful antioxidants with multiple properties. The main part of the white tea is composed of buds, for the Silver Needles tea, and of buds plus the two youngest leaves for the Bai mu Dan tea. This is why the benefits of white tea are more intense than other types of tea. It is also important to distinguish between loose tea and tea bags. The latter, sold in supermarkets at low prices, is unfortunately often made of tea dust and therefore waste. If you wish to take advantage of the multiple virtues of tea, prefer loose tea.
