White tea = green te: White tea comes from the same plant as green tea. The only difference is that white tea leaves are picked at a younger age than green tea leaves. If anything, during processing, they retain MORE of the flavonoids & other aromatic compounds that give it it's unique flavor. However, it should interact with warfarin just as much, if not more, than green tea. Tell your doctor if you'll be experimentin
