White Tea Health Benefits Fujian


The ancient ancestors of the Chinese were drinking white tea long before it was proclaimed a “superfood.” The legend tells that one fateful day emperor Shen Nung had stopped his caravan near a river to boil water, in order to make it safe for drinking. While the water was cooling, a white tea leaf blew into his bowl and he consumed the beverage without knowing. He loved it so much that he drank it every day until he died. Emperor Shen Nung wasn’t even aware of how powerful the antioxidants in his tea were, however today they may hold the key to cancer prevention, weight loss, and skin health; just to name a few. Almost all of white tea’s health benefits can be linked to its high levels of antioxidants.

About Inko's White teas

The founders of Inko’s Tea had a passion to bring a “better” tea to the marketplace. It was 2002 and bottled iced tea had become pretty popular. The problem was that most teas were too sweet, loaded with sugar or “diet” with that super artificial taste.

Our founders were tea lovers, brewing and icing white tea because of its smooth, subtle taste. But after some investigation, they found that white tea was more than a wonderful tasting tea... it had many benefits to it, some of which are listed on this site.

White tea is not your common, run-of-the-mill tea. It is, in fact, very rare, harvested only in spring and grown in a few remote places. This hand-picked tea is delicate and it’s less processed than other teas. We think it’s quite special and that’s why organic white tea from the Fujian Province is all we use in Inko’s.

We strive to be the best tea we can be and we are proud that Inko’s is now certified organic and contains no GMOs. As a small, independent tea company, we take great care to make sure that you are getting a phenomenal product without the things you don’t need – lots of sugar and calories and lots of artificial or mysterious ingredients.
