White tea is a type of tea with a fruity, delicate flavor. It is known for being high in antioxidants and low in caffeine.

White tea originated in Fujian, China, in the 1700s. It has been made in Fujian since then, and was mostly consumed in China.
Yellow Tea is produced by letting damp tea leaves naturally turn yellow. It has an original smell, which could be mistaken for red tea if it is cured with herbs, but its taste is most similar to green and white teas. Yellow Tea is also a term used to describe the top-quality tea served to the emperor, because the imperial color has traditionally been yellow.
