Looking for something to help your skin? Something that’ll keep the stress from showing? Look no further. White Tea to the rescue! Did you know that white tea is famous for the fine white hairs called pekoe that cover its leaves? This tea has grey-colored leaf buds and limish colored tea that’s known to be sweet, According to Teavivre, it was also considered to be the pinnacle of tea in china, so it was here before black tea!
Going back to the whole skin care routine, white tea is a must-have when it comes up to healthy skin. In a study presented with Organic Facts it is stated that:
“… this tea (white tea) may increase antioxidant effects of organs as well as plasma. Another study was done to investigate neuroprotective effect of white tea extract on hydrogen peroxide-induced toxicity. The results of this study showed that white tea extracts with its antioxidant properties help in cell neuroprotection.” This tea has antioxidants that help with quick recovery for skin that’s been damaged, and protects against UV lights.
Being a tea person myself, I’m considering doing a one week challenge of just white tea instead of my usual teas. It would be an interesting experiment, right?
Anywho, going back to the tea facts, a major benefit other than great skin is oral health. “But how and why?” you may ask. White tea is known to improve oral health as mentioned by a previous source, “the presence of polyphenols, flavonoids, and tannins help in inhibiting the growth of various bacteria that may cause plaque formation. The fluoride content found in this tea may also be effective in reducing the risk of dental caries or tooth decay/cavity.” Ladies in gentleman keep in mind that this is not a replacement factor for oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing.
So bottom line here, folks: Get yourselves some tea! What do you have to lose? You can only gain from this experience, my recommendation on the topic of white tea is to start with a popular kind of white tea known as the silver needle. It has a beautiful scent and taste; lemme know if you give it a try!
