Does white tea have an equal amount of EGCG to green tea?

I know tea all comes from the same plant, and I kow the difference in production of Green Tea and White tea. What I’d liek to know is if white tea has the EGCG still, or if because it hasn’t matured fully (or been cooked) the EGCG is unusable (or some other lack of it).

1. White tea:

The new rave, it actually provides better cancer fighting protection – see website below, but the level of EGCG is a little less, it still has a substantial amount of the polyphenol, so drink up. One thing to be careful about, depending on the way its decaffeinated (sometimes they can use something called acetate) it can strip the tea of the benefits (including the EGCG), its imperative that you drink non-decaffeinated (as natural as possible) if you want to receive the max. amount of health benefits from the tea, there is so little caffeine in white or green, don’t worry about the amount of caffeine unless you are allergic.
