"[White tea] has been shown to contain the largest amount of catechins, from which EGCG is also present abundantly," a recent paper notes.
"The amount of caffeine in [white tea] is also substantially larger compared with for instance [green tea]."
"More research is needed to study [white tea's] effect on thermogenesis." REFERENCE
