White tea is the least processed of all teas; fresh, tender tealeaf buds are simply laid out to dry either naturally or with the use of fans in a process called “withering.” No heat is applied, and the leaves are handled as little as possible. White teas provide the most delicate flavor and the least amount of caffeine of all teas. They come predominately from the Fujian Province in China, where the harvest period is only a brief couple of weeks in the spring. White teas were once reserved exclusively for emperors and other high-ranking officials, and have always been, known for being particularly refreshing.
