This world famous Castleton white tea represents one of the best white tea offerings from this renowned Darjeeling garden. Another one of those Darjeelings whose appearance alone satisfies the senses. Lovely, elegant twisted spider legs of many different colors, a nest of warm earth tones with fluffy silver tips.
