Research has proven that White Tea is the least oxidized of all the tea varieties. Due to white teas being the least oxidized, and the higher proportion of young bud leaves, white tea is usually very low in caffeine, which makes it a good choice for people who are watching their caffeine intake. Many people believe that white teas are better for you than green tea because it has been processed less.
However, research has shown that white tea contains the same free radical fighting catechins as green tea. White tea can help to prevent heart disease, cancers and strokes, as well as helping to treat diabetes. High levels of calcium and fluoride found in white teas help to maintain healthy teeth, gums and bones. White tea is an excellent addition to your daily tea brewing routine.
