PRLog - April 6, 2011 - In recent years white tea has been increasingly recognized for its purity and many health benefits. Though white tea has been used in Asia for many centuries, it is also becoming more and more popular in the western world.
White tea is the purest and least processed of all teas. The leaf buds are picked before they fully open, preserving the high levels of antioxidants, and are then quickly air-dried to produce some of the rarest tea available. White teas tend to have little caffeine and brew a light color and delicate flavor; often slightly sweet.
White tea offers many health benefits, including:
• Stimulating the brain
• Increasing alertness and endurance during physical activity
• Increasing the body's metabolism to help lose weight
• Acting as a diuretic which can lower blood pressure
• Restoring fluid balance
• Preventing tooth decay
• Strengthening bones, preventing osteoporosis and relief from arthritis
Drinking white tea can also be very relaxing, lowering stress levels through the preparation and consumption.
