White Tea

Processing of White tea sounds ridiculously simple - pick leaves, put them out in the sun to dry (or air heaters if it's rainy) and voila you have White tea. But when a process is so simple there is no room for mistakes, no way to fix any shortcomings in extra layers of processing. Any errors will be easy to pick up to the trained palate. This is the Goldilocks of tea - a small aberration makes an obviously poorer quality tea - all conditions have to be 'just right'.
