White tea is made with young leaves that are gently steamed and then dried. This process is believed to help lock in their natural nutrients. Teas (black, green, white, etc.) are full of powerful antioxidants, but white tea comes out on top having almost three times the amount of antioxidants as any other tea. White tea is also beneficial to your heart in that their flavonoids “help to prevent plaque proliferation in your arteries.” White tea can also help lower cholesterol levels, improve blood circulation, reduce your risk of cancer by minimizing cellular damage, and they also help to strengthen your bones.
Since white teas have a milder and sweeter flavor with less caffeine, they are often a great way to get started in adding tea to your lifestyle.
