Hi shanmugapriya,

Hi shanmugapriya,
White tea leaves come from a special varietal tea bush called Narcissus or chaicha bushes. For white tea, the little buds that form on the plant are covered with silver hairs that give the young leaves a white appearance
New studies conducted at Pace University have indicated that White Tea Extract (WTE) may have prophylactic applications in retarding growth of bacteria that cause Staphylococcus infections, Streptococcus infections, pneumonia and dental caries ....................greentealovers.com/greenteahealthwhitetea.htm#virus

Dear Shanmugapriya,

Dear Shanmugapriya,
 
White tea is derived from the same plant from which green and black tea are made (Camellia sinensis), white tea is considered to be a more rare and unique product. The term “white” is derived from the high proportion of silvery buds on the plant at the time of harvesting, which tend to impart a white tint to the tea.

I'd be interested to see if

I'd be interested to see if any 'scientific' studies have been performed on the antimicrobial effect of components of white tea and if these concentrations were physiological i.e. you don't have to ingest 3 tonnes of white tea to reap the benefits.
Grateful if anyone can find a journal article...
