Story, Folklore, History...
In Greek mythology, Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, is said to have created the rose which arose from her tears and the blood of her lover Adonis. The Romans, turning Aphrodite into their goddess Venus, also adopted the rose: it became the symbol of love and beauty. The culinary use of edible blooms dates back thousands of years, with the first recorded mention in 140 BC.

So what makes tea white? Actually, very little. White tea is the closest you can get to a freshly picked leaf. It is basically a tea leaf that is dried and not processed at all.
