This is the most delicate type of Darjeeling tea and commands the highest price. It is hand picked from the lot after tea is plucked from the gardens, dried in sun and hand rolled. There are no other steps followed in white tea processing. The tea leaves keep their original organic form retaining all the minerals and natural ingredients. The liquor is pale golden in color and has a hint of natural sweetness. White tea is usually quite light in weight and therefore while making tea you will need to add more quantity of leaves than the other varieties. Also keep the water below the boiling point. White tea is these days quite popular in United States due to their great health benefits.
