White tea is the easily digestible royal discipline among the teas
White tea is the king's tea. Originally, the drinking of white tea was only withheld from the Chinese emperor, so today this exquisite variety can be bought worldwide. Due to the complex manufacturing process, white tea is one of the most valuable and thus rather expensive teas. At Wanthai Wellness and Living we offer a large online selection of the best quality white tea at a reasonable price. Trust our selection of white tea and the experienced Hamburg tea manufacturer Alveus. All offered white teas are loose teas from renowned growing areas and are known for the gentle and professional production of white tea.
What is the difference between white tea to black tea or green tea?
All three teas are based on the same plant, the camellia plant (Thea Camellia). However, the white tea is processed differently. White tea is made from the still closed tender leaf bud, which is surrounded by a white down and is responsible for the white colour. That`s where the name of this tea comes from. The fermentation takes place in white tea to only two percent, which is possible only by natural means. Thanks to this gentle processing, the fresh, young and floral aroma of white tea remains and unfolds its unique effect when enjoying tea. The difference to black or green tea is not only in the colour, also the mild taste, the valuable ingredients and good compatibility of the white tea deviate strongly from the siblings, the green and black tea. Although all three varieties contain caffeine, the percentage is considerably lower in white tea. So it has a slightly stimulating effect, but not overly and especially in a stomach-friendly way.
Quality features and effect of exquisite white tea
The white tea is divided into four main varieties. The highest quality reflects the White Tea: Silver Needle Tea. Second place is occupied by the Pai Mu Tan tea, in third position the Gong Mei and in fourth place the White Tea Shou Mei. Up to six grades differentiate additionally in the respective category of white tea. With its valuable ingredients such as polyphenols, antioxidants and flavonol glycosides, the high-quality white tea is said to have an immune-boosting, metabolism-stimulating and cardiovascular-strengthening effect.
From which growing areas does loose white tea originate?
Since the 11th century, white tea is already produced in China. In the meantime, however, all known growing areas have also taken over the production of white tea. Meanwhile, there are loose white tea from China, Japan, India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam to buy. Of course, the growing area characterizes the white tea very much and is clearly recognizable to tea lovers. In our online shop we offer only exquisite white tea from China and Vietnam. Both growing areas are known for the fine mild white tea - an absolute treat for tea drinkers.
