Health benefits of white tea include a reduced risk of cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and an improvement in oral health. It has antioxidant and anti-aging properties which help in maintaining good health and wrinkle-free skin. It protects the skin from harmful effects of UV rays. With its antibacterial properties, white tea also protects the body from various infection-causing bacteria.

It provides relief to diabetics from symptoms such as decreased plasma glucose levels, increased insulin secretion, and excessive thirst (polydipsia). Intake of white tea also helps in losing weight.

Though it is consumed as a common beverage, it has plenty of health benefits that can be accounted for after several studies have been carried out both in the present and in the past as well. Due to these benefits, it is considered as a better alternative than coffee, which contains a high percentage of caffeine. Green and black teas are equally beneficial but it is the white tea that undergoes the least processing, which helps in retaining high levels of phytochemicals. Due to minimal processing, the production of white tea requires much lesser time and labor as computed to black tea or green tea production.

History suggests that it may have originated in China. With changing dynasties of China in the past, the production of white tea also changed. With time, various types of this tea were created using a selected type of tea bushes.

Great post Dragon

I'm not a herbalist or anything but I wanted to add this here: I have asthma and have found a cup of white tea really helps me to breathe easier, just the same way as a puff of Ventolin does. Just me who has noticed this but I wanted to add this here for any who might want to try it for yourselves or a relative (just not during an attack!) and not replacing usual meds
