White Tea White tea leaves are picked early in the season when the buds are fresh and tender; then the leaves are gently dried. White tea undergoes the least processing - the leaves are simply withered and dried. This method maintains higher levels of antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins, while also yielding much less caffeine than the other tea varieties. Our exceptional white teas brew to a light golden color with a light, delicate flavor that is sweet and refreshing. Bulk white tea from Butters-N-Bars is guaranteed to be of the highest quality and comes sourced only from the finest growers in the world.
