In recent times especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the popularity of white tea has reached a new high. Is it just a fad or there are solid reasons behind that? Being native to India and China, this tea blend comes from the Camellia Sinesis plant.
The erstwhile use of white tea dates back to the Song Dynasty (AD 960 – 1297). The main reason behind the increasing adoption of white tea is its antioxidizing properties that are far better than its green and black counterparts. Another plus point with this variate of tea is that it also contains some levels of caffeine, which makes it an ideal choice for tea drinkers who strive to reduce or stop caffeine consumption.
