A whiter shade of Tea

Best Blogger Tips
Hundreds of studies have investigated green tea for its anti cancer and anti oxidant effects, tracing its health- enhancing properties to polyphenols.  Now researchers thave turned their attention to another tea: white.  Starting from the same leaves as a better known green and black varieties, White Tea is  minimally processed so it retains more active polyphenols.
