- Our Organic Legends of China White Tea (camellia sinensis) comes from high in the mountains of the Fujian Province of China and is grown without pesticides, with natural fertilizer and with careful attention for the preservation of the ecosystem. White tea (youngest camellia sinensis) undergoes very little processing (steaming, rolling and oxidation) which leaves the appearance and cell structure of the leaves nearly unaltered. This purity may be what some researchers have found that causes white teas to have a greater concentration of cancer fighting antioxidants than all other teas. White teas have all of the benefits of green tea and are the most delicate of all, their taste being subtle, complex and mildly sweet. Because there is very little processing with white tea, the caffeine content is also fairly low at approximately 15 to 20 mg per cup. In comparison, green tea contains 20 to 40 mg per cup, black tea contains 50 to 55 mg per 8 oz. cup and common coffee contains about 100 to 120 mg per cup on the average.
