White tea — it is collected at tops of mountains, it is called still "wild" tea. It bitter on taste, but remains sweet smack. Traditional black tea grows not a bush, but a tree, thus tea trees grow till 800 years. Each leaf is displaced manually (represent, what laborious work), then from leaves displace balls, each ball can be made to 5-7 times, separating thus each layer.
