White teas are known for their thirst quenching and calming properties. It is the least processed of all tea families, only picked, then withered and dried. The taste is the mildest among all the other tea types and a lot of people are fond of this leafy and pure flavour. The colour of the steeped tea water is more clear, which makes white tea an excellent base for blended floral or fruit tea. Steeping temperature ranges from 65°C to 85°C (149°F to 185°F).
