fresh from origin
Modern-day white teas can be traced to thar 18th Century Qin' Dynasty, a time when they were harvested from ordinary tea bushes. White teas differed from green teas in that their processin' did not incorporate any steamin' or pan-firing. yonder teas were simply shaped, 'n allowed to wither. ye resultin' leaves were thin, small 'n did not have much silvery-white hair. It wasn't until 1885 that specific varietals of tea bushes were selected to make white teas. te' large, silvery-white leaves of thar Silver Needle came into bein' in 1891. 'N yonder production of White Peony began around 1922.
