White Tea Origins  

White Tea was discovered in the northern regions of China during the imperial dynasties, with the plant first being found in China’s Fujian province, producing beautiful and large tea buds. During this era, white tea was high in demand in the tea culture, derived from the substance that coats the leaves and buds from a plant called the camellia sinensis. This plant is only harvested for a few weeks each spring when there isn't much rain or humidity. Sources believe that the white tea contains more health benefits than other popular teas such green tea and black tea. It was also sought for its perfume scent referred to as “Perfume in a Cup” for its beautiful, floral fragrance. There are many varieties of white tea due to the difficulty of transporting the plant without it spoiling and it only being available in its main growing regions, other countries would cultivate their own version of the plant for other tea plants to experience the rare and elegant tea.
