White tea, like green and black teas, is also made from the Camellia sinensis plant, but because white tea goes through less processing, it retains higher amounts of antioxidants and develops unique flavors and aromas. Lose yourself in a field of jasmine flowers or spa-like blend of cucumber.
DRINK WHITE TEA FOR THE HEALTH OF IT
IMPROVE YOUR ORAL HEALTH
White tea can help improve your oral health. The presence of polyphenols, flavonoids, and tannins help inhibit the growth of bacteria that may cause plaque formation. The fluoride content found in tea may also be effective in reducing the risk of tooth decay.
PROTECT YOUR SKIN
White tea has antioxidant and anti-aging properties which help in maintaining good health and wrinkle-free skin. It also protects the skin from harmful effects of UV rays.
White tea should be brewed with water that is below boiling. Higher temperatures can scald the tea. You should generally use water that is around 175° F.
Beyond its refreshing taste and relaxing aroma, white tea comes with zero-calorie content making it a good alternative for water when you're looking for flavor. White tea also has a high quantity of catechins, making it helpful for weight loss. The catechin components stimulate the fat burning activity. Can plain water do that?
Let butter sit at room temperature until very soft and pliable. Mix together the butter with tea leaves (leaves will add cool streaky abstract designs). Shape the mixed butter into a log or press into a small ramekin and cover with plastic wrap. Store in the fridge to firm back up, or keep it soft. Delicious on freshly baked bread and biscuits.
