תה לבן

White tea

The most trendy tea today in China and abroad, came to awareness only in the current century. Despite its seemingly simple production, which includes stages of drying under different environmental conditions, real white tea is considered a meticulous and complex craft that hardly depends on the equipment. Chinese white tea originates in Fuding, a mountainous area at the north-eastern tip of Fujian Province, but many equally interesting versions of white tea can be found in Yunnan and other tea provinces of China. The history of white tea is slowly beginning to be explored and clarified, but it is still difficult to pinpoint when exactly the local tea in fuding began to take shape as we know it today.
