White Tea

According to legend, people learned about tea after the Divine Farmer Shen Nun, who came to earth to study the properties of plants and pass this knowledge to mankind, tried several poisonous plants, felt bad and lay down under a tree, from which a dew heated by the sun rolled down and fell into his mouth, after which he recovered completely. Of course, the tree was a tea tree, and the heated dewdrop turned out to be the first tea infusion in history. Following the precepts of the Divine Farmer, the Chinese began to dry tea leaves and use them to strengthen and cleanse the body.

Based on the above verified sources, we can confidently assert that the first tea known to mankind was most likely white. The thing is that it is white tea that is the most that neither is the quintessence of "naturalness and usefulness", since it is white teas that are produced with minimal human participation. The main idea of ​​white tea is to preserve the tea leaf in the form in which it grows on the bush, while preserving the maximum natural and natural.
White tea is made from spring (with rare exceptions) raw materials, that is, from the buds and first leaves of a tea plant, and a minimum of human technological participation is used in its production. White tea is the result of sun-shadow fermentation, therefore, in the infusion of white tea, you can find the maximum of natural usefulness that is contained in the tea leaf.

White tea infusion contains a large amount of polyphenolic compounds, in particular one of the most useful catechins - tannin. Catechins are widely recognized as one of the world's most powerful antioxidants.

«Tea contains four main components of catechins: EC, ECg, EGC and EGCg. Epigallocatechin (EGC) is the strongest antioxidant of the four main tea catechins, 25-100 times stronger than vitamins C and E. One cup of tea a day provides 10-40 milligrams of polyphenols»

What does it give us?

  • Being a strong antioxidant, white tea reduces the amount of free radicals in the human body, to some extent preventing the occurrence of cancer;
  • Antioxidants improve skin condition and slow down skin aging;
  • White tea strengthens the immune system, has antimicrobial and antiviral properties, helps fight colds;
In addition to catechins, white tea also contains a large amount of vitamins, in particular C, P and B1. A bit of science: “Vitamin compounds have a metabolic effect, are not formed in the human body, but come only with food. Vitamin C is involved in the regulation of redox processes, carbohydrate metabolism, blood clotting, tissue regeneration; increases the body's resistance to infections, reduces vascular permeability. Vitamin C (or ascorbic acid) is also involved in the conversion of cholesterol to bile acids. P-vitamins, together with ascorbic acid, participate in redox processes, and also increase the concentration of hyaluronic acid, which increases the elasticity of capillaries and reduces their permeability, reduces blood clotting and increases the elasticity of red blood cells. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) plays an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. This substance is necessary for the normal course of growth and development processes and helps to maintain the proper functioning of the heart, nervous and digestive systems. ”Of course, tea is not the main supplier of the above vitamins to the body, so you should not give up fresh vegetables and fruits in favor of tea, but tea will still be a good addition to your daily diet. Not for nothing, nomadic peoples often used tea as a source of vitamins in their long journeys (Kalmyk, Tibest tea).

What are the benefits of white tea vitamins?
  • Improves blood properties
  • Boosts immunity
  • Supports the work of the nervous, digestive and cardiovascular systems
White tea also contains a lot of fluorides, which keep teeth intact and fight the development of dental caries and tartar. Thus, summarizing all of the above, we can note the special beneficial properties of white tea - white tea is an invaluable source of catechins and an excellent addition to the fortification of a person. Most of these trace elements are not reproducible and enter the human body only with food and drinks.

Therefore, we strongly recommend that you include white tea in your diet, since its constant use will undoubtedly have a beneficial effect on your health!
