So what is the white tea from Japan supposed to be?

So Japanese white tea that so so talked about is very different from the white tea we know of and very popular up in coming tea from China.  Is it called "white tea" because of it's expected benefit of rejuvenating your skin and bring back the brilliance and clearness to your skin?  It has a really strong kick of tannin but very full body with long finish.  It will make a nice aperitif, a nice starter drink for rich meal for the evening.  French perhaps....  So what do you know about this kind?  Please write in your thoughts, comments, and knowledge.... to share....
