White tea is an open-air dried sort, with freshly picked buds and younger leaves. The real secret to making white tea is to just “let it happen”: oxidation is not promoted, enzyme activity is not inhibited at all. That allows the tea to retain its fresh character while at the same time giving it a warm, sweet nature due to the minimal, natural oxidation. The infusion is fragrant, naturally sweet, slightly citrusy, smooth, and easy to drink. The simple picking and drying of white tea perfectly preserve the tea’s main constituents and active ingredients. The brew strength is low for white teas that made of large, opened leaves.
