White tea and green tea both come from the same source, and the difference lies in their harvesting. White tea is picked at the initial time of harvesting and is more expensive than green tea as it has to be hand-picked carefully. Both white tea and green tea are rich in antioxidants and hence are beneficial. However, since white tea is less processed than green tea, it has more antioxidants.

White tea and Green tea are both derived from the same plant, Camellia sinesis. As a matter of fact, all teas come from the same species of shrub, black, red, white and green. The difference between them does not lie in their harvesting, but in the method of fermentation. Green tea is the only tea that is not fermented. White, red and black teas are fermented, white being the least fermented and black the most. The fermentation process develops flavour but it also reduces nutrient content such as the amount of l-theanine found within the tea and other nutrients and secondary compounds such as antioxidants.
Although white teas are a great source of antioxidants, no tea can compare to the antioxidant benefits of powdered matcha (which is made from tencha a style of green tea). The most beneficial variety of matcha is ceremonial grade, which is shade grown to increase not only l-theanine content in the tea leaves but also chlorophyll – which provides matcha with is bright green colour.
