White tea comes from the delicate buds and young leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant.  It's harvested earlier than other teas.  The best tea buds are harvested in March and April.  It's critical to harvest white tea on a frost free morning of a dry day, after a night's dew has dried.  It's critical that buds remain undamaged in harvest. 

Young tea leaves, with fine silvery-white hairs on unopened buds, produce the finest quality tea.  White tea is mostly grown and harvested in the Fujian province of China.

Leaves and buds wither in natural sunlight before being processed.  Young tea leaves and unopened buds are steamed or fired to inactivate polyphenol oxidase.  Next, the leaves and buds are dried.  Silver fuzz remain on the unopened buds, then turns white when dry, thus the name "white tea".
