You’ve probably heard a lot about black and green teas; these teas are great for just about anyone, but there’s yet another member of the family- the white tea. It sure comes fully loaded with lots of terrific health and skincare benefits. Wondering what these benefits may be? Not to worry, you will get all of that information right there.
White Tea Properties?
White tea usually has a caffeine percentage lower than that of both black and green teas in most cases, but it’s possible to find one with about the same amount of caffeine; it all depends on the process of production and the location where it’s planted.
It’s made from the same famous plant as the black and green tea- the Camellia Sinensis plant. The harvesting process and method of production makes the big difference. Just before the plant buds open, they are picked and taken for production. Well, the name white tea has nothing to do with the colour you see in your teacup; white tea is actually pale yellow in colour. It earned its name from the whitish hairs that cover the opening buds at the time it is picked.
White tea contains a rich amount of phytonutrients called polyphenols which are primarily responsible for the health benefits of tea. One other good news about this tea is the fact that it doesn’t go bad over time if preserved properly .
Superb for Skincare:
White tea extracts come fortified with antioxidant and antiseptic properties make it an outstanding product for skin care. Its popularity is quickly spreading and its unique skin care benefits are scientifically recognised. Its antiseptic properties keep the harmful bacteria away, while its rich antioxidant content keeps your skin ever-young by shielding it from potentially harmful radicals that can damage the skin and trigger skin-ageing. It also provides a film of protection around the skin’s surface to shield it from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
Just the feel of relaxation while you seep takes the stress off, giving your skin a better condition to breathe and regrow
Other White Tea Benefits
