Teas & Mates / White And Yellow Teas

White and yellow teas undergo very little processing. They are harvested and dried in the sun – the specific feature of yellow teas is that they are dried in heaps (steamed), while white teas are spread out in fine layers. The resulting clear liquor has an unusual milky thickness, which is still more noticeable in the qualities that only consist of tea tips. They are brewed at lower temperature and can be prepared in a gaiwan. The number of infusions depends on the quality of the tea.

What are the virtues of white tea?

White tea is a healthy beverage that offers numerous health benefits.

Unheated and oxidised, it is less processed than its green or black cousins. However, you should choose your white tea carefully, depending on the time of day you drink it. Even though it has a clear, delicate liquor, Yin Zhen is made up entirely of buds and is therefore very invigorating.

As a result, it retains all its beneficial properties and is considered an excellent antioxidant. Protect your immune system with this virtuous beverage!

It also eliminates many of the toxins present in the body and acts as an appetite suppressant. Calorie-free, white tea also improves the cardiovascular system.
