White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

Why does my white tea (or any tea) turn dark as it sits on my warming setting ???

Dear Madame:

That's not a "warming setting." It's a tanning bed.

Also, that's not White Tea.

every tea you brew is gonna have some tea dust, and keeping it on a heater is just like slowly cooking the dust that settles on the bottom. To lessen the effect of this, try to give your leaves as little impact as possible when steeping to prevent dust from falling. Never stir your leaves; this creates tons of dust that can make your tea visibly cloudy. The only foolproof way of preventing the bitterness that is cooked tea dust is to simply drink faster. ^^ you can call me over and ill happily help you out. =P
