White tea is rich in antioxidants and has antibacterial and anti-aging properties. It can help you prevent premature aging and boost your immune system. There has been a lot of research, and it’s been substantiated that white tea protects your skin from germs and bacteria. Hence, it’s also a key ingredient in hand soaps.

Other more extreme illnesses you can fight with the help of white tea include cancer, diabetes, and even obesity. White tea extracts have anti-mutagenic properties and reduce the growth of cancerous cells.

If you or a loved one has diabetes, you can use this tea to increase insulin secretion, decrease plasma glucose levels, and manage polydipsia that causes excessive thirst.

For the common folk, white tea is a delicacy that can help you lose weight by preventing fat cells from forming in your body.

Brewing Instructions for Darjeeling White Tea

To brew white tea, measure 2.5 grams of tea leaves per cup. Use freshly boiled water, and pour it into a teapot with the tea leaves. Brew for about 5-7 minutes. You can increase or decrease the infusion time to adjust the flavor. High temperatures will not change the inherent characteristics of white tea. Still, we recommend you brew them at relatively cooler water temperatures nearing 70 degrees celsius.

Because white tea already has subtle floral notes and delicate, it’s best to drink it unsweetened. You can add some citrus or honey to it, but for a natural taste, just have it plain. Using a tea infuser, you can re-steep the white tea leaves multiple times and get the same delicious beverage.
