Xue Ya is born in Fujian Province, the origin of white tea. Note the "bai hao" (white hairs) on each wiry bud; this is he sign of a quality leaf. Each infusion results in a pale, aromatic liquor. Since the leaves have not been crushed, the delicate flavor is best enjoyed on a clean palate.
Regular green tea is 99.9% water, provides 1 Calorie per 100 mL serving, is devoid of significant nutrient content and contains phytochemicals, such as polyphenols and caffeine. Other components include three kinds of flavonoids, known as kaempferol, quercetin, and myricetin. A remarkably higher content of myricetin is detected in tea and its extracts than in many other plants, and this high concentration of myricetin may have some implications for the experimentally-observed bioactivity of tea and its extracts in vitro.
