The best production of the tea is from the first flushes from late March to early April. Pluck the first new buds before it opens. The best time to pluck the white tea is on a sunny morning. The buds are laid in shallow baskets and under the sun for a long period. Then, the softened buds will be piled for required enzyme oxidation before they go through a low-temperature bake-dry of the later process.
