White Tea is one of the rarest teas in the world and was once reserved for the nobility in China. It is made from the Camellia sinensis plant and it contains polyphenols which are a set of Phytochemicals. The quantity of polyphenols is different in different teas due to variation in the type of plant from which the tea was picked, the method of cultivation, and the processing procedure.
What differentiates white tea from other tea varieties is the type of leaf that is plucked (a single bud) and the post-harvest process. The process for producing white tea starts with carefully harvesting by hand, the young, unopened buds from selected quality clones. These buds are dried under careful monitoring instead of rolling and oxidizing like other types of tea. As a result, white tea undergoes the least amount of post-harvest processing. What we obtain is a pale tea with a sweet, silky flavor, like KDHP Ripple Premium White Tea.
White tea is known to have certain health benefits as well. The following are the reasons why you should go for White Tea-
It contains a high amount of antioxidants-
White Tea is known to be very rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants protect our body cells against free radicals which may cause damage to our body and may be responsible for cancer, heart diseases, and other diseases.
May help in increasing metabolism-
Due to a busy lifestyle, people hardly find time these days to look after their health. When it comes to weight loss and increasing metabolism, people always go for Green Tea. But according to research, White Tea can help and increase energy expenditure by almost 4-5% which may eventually lead to weight loss.
Helps to treat acne-
Acne is a common issue most teenagers face these days. Not only teenagers, but people from different age groups also get acne at some point. It may surprise you but White Tea is known to have antiseptic and antioxidant properties. When consumed, these antioxidants help to keep the skin healthy and prevent acne by flushing out the toxins from the body.
Protects your teeth-
Permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of teeth, called Cavities, are very common these days. It can be due to various factors such as bacteria, unhealthy food habits, or bad cleaning practices. White tea has fluoride, flavonoids, and tannins which help to keep the teeth strong, prevent them from decay, and reduces caries.
Beneficial for Diabetic Patients –
Diabetes is a condition in which blood sugar becomes very high. If it is not controlled, it may even lead to strokes and heart diseases as well. Regular consumption of White tea can improve the condition of diabetic patients, like a decrease in plasma glucose levels and an increase in insulin secretion.
