White tea is generally made by young or minimally processed leaves of the C. sinensis plant. Distinguishedfrom other teas of the C. sinensis, white tea is not fermented or oxidized. White tea does not require anypanning, rolling, or shaking processes. Instead, it has a flavor characterized as “lighter” than green teaand black tea. In spite of its name, brewed white tea is pale yellow, and tastes milder, sweeter, and fresherthan its siblings.
Scientific reports on white teas distinctly demonstrate anti-wrinkle and anti-inflammatory effects in boththe cellular and animal levels. In vivo study showed potential anti-photoaging activity as well, based onskin erythema, moisture content, and skin barrier parameters. Furthermore, anti-inflammatory activity wasrevealed by monitoring IL-8 produced by skin cells treated with white tea extract.
