White tea is a lightly oxidized tea grown and harvested primarily in China, mostly in the Fujian province. More recently it is grown in Taiwan, Northern
Thailand and Eastern Nepal. White tea comes from the buds and leaves of the Chinese Camellia sinensis plant. The name "white tea" derives from
the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which gives the plant a whitish appearance. White tea shares many of the same
chemical properties and health effects of tea. However, white tea contains the most antioxidants.
