Organic Makaibari Silver Tips White Tea
This organic, Fair Trade Certified white tea is biodynamically farmed at the Makaibari estate in India’s Darjeeling district. Established in 1859, Markaibari is the oldest estate in Darjeeling, where a strong commitment to sustainable farming prevails. This tea consists of leaves of various shades of green and brown, with silver and beige downy buds. They produce a light, golden-amber infusion, with an inviting character. By far the richest and earthiest of our white teas (relatively speaking), the aroma carries the slightest whiff of muscatel, hinting at the Darjeeling origin of this white tea.
Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.
