Everyone can benefit from White Tea
White tea is one of the most minimally processed teas. It is also harvested while the plant is still young, leading to a very distinct flavor. The white tea taste is often described as delicate and slightly sweet. Since it is not rolled or oxidized like other types of tea, it tends to have a much lighter flavor.

Much like other types of tea, white tea is abundant in polyphenols, catechins and antioxidants. Health benefits of white tea include a reduced risk of cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and an improvement in oral health. It has antioxidant and anti-aging properties which help in maintaining good health and wrinkle-free skin. It protects the skin from harmful effects of UV rays. With its antibacterial properties, white tea also protects the body from various infection-causing bacteria.
Like most other teas, it does contain a small amount of caffeine. However, the white tea caffeine content is lower than other types of tea, such as black or green tea. It contains between 15–20 milligrams of caffeine per cup, while green tea can have up to 30 milligrams and black tea contains 50 milligrams.
- High in Antioxidants
White tea is loaded with antioxidants, which help fight off harmful free radicals and counteract oxidative stress to cells. These beneficial compounds have even been shown to reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes.
Some research, like that published in the Journal of Food Science and conducted at the Department of Biological Sciences at Lehman College, has found that white tea and green tea contain comparable levels of antioxidants and polyphenols. Drinking a cup or two of white tea per day could make a major impact on your health.
- Improves Oral Health
White tea contains many compounds that could help promote oral health, including plant compounds like polyphenols and tannins.
These compounds can help reduce plaque formation by blocking the growth of bacteria. Additionally, the fluoride found in the tea has a high bioavailability, which can prevent cavities. Sip on some White Magic Mango Pear and give yourself an oral health boost.

- May Kill Cancer Cells
Thanks to its high concentration of antioxidants, some studies have found that white tea could boast cancer-fighting properties.
A test-tube study published in Cancer Prevention Research treated lung cancer cells with white tea extract, which was found to kill off cancer cells. Other studies reveal colon cancer cells from spreading and protect healthy cells against damage.
- Protects Brain Health
Research shows that white tea may help protect your brain health due to its high catechin content. White tea also contains a similar antioxidant profile to green tea. Both have been shown to improve cognitive function in the elderly and reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
Compounds in white tea, like the polyphenol EGCG, may lower the risk of developing Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
For example, several test-tube studies have shown that EGCG can prevent proteins from inappropriately folding and clumping together. This is a risk factor for both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Misfolded and clumped proteins can promote inflammation and damage nerves in the brain.
There are also several human studies that have linked drinking tea with a lower risk of both diseases.
- Reduces Cholesterol Levels
Cholesterol is a fat-like substance found in your blood. Although your body needs cholesterol, having too much can cause plaque to build up in the arteries, causing the arteries to narrow and harden.
Antioxidant catechin found in white tea has been found to reduce cholesterol. There is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol, and white tea is known for increasing the good one while reducing the bad one. This prevents the hardening of arteries.
- White Tea Contributes to Bone Health
Regular consumption of white tea can help to improve bone density and strength. It can also provide relief from the symptoms of osteoporosis.
8. Lowers Blood Pressure
Studies have found that white tea has a capacity to thin the blood and improve the function of arteries. This helps to lower high blood pressure and maintain a steady one. White tea also guards against the ravages of stroke by promoting strong and healthy blood vessels.
