Did You Know: Tea teaser (The New Green Tea)

They’re calling it the new green tea for its great health benefits. Yep, white tea is the hot new tea on the block. Studies show it’s got the highest level of antioxidants of all teas, plus the lowest level of caffeine.

First flush — leaves picked just before the buds open — is what makes white tea unique. And, it’s air-dried, which keeps the tea closer to its natural state. The result? Pale tea with a sweet, silky and delicate flavour — and mm-mm-good for you.
