Grade: WHITE TEA – A unique White tea grown at a high elevation in Darjeeling. One of the seasons earliest, each leaf is tenderly and selectively picked before sunrise from young AV II clones and hand rolled by trained experts, undergoing the very minimal processing. The tea has a mildly grassy flavour with muscatel notes. Very light in cup and a pale yellow colour it leaves a fresh lingering aftertaste, hallmarks of pure white teas. A very exclusive offering from Golden Tips for the tea connoisseurs to savour.

Packaging:

Aluminium Foil Lined Paper Bags

I LOVE Darjeeling white teas. They’re about as resilient as a Chinese Bai Mu Dan but with a grape-like character that Himalayan teas are known for. This is one of the poorer examples I’ve tried, though. It doesn’t yield much in the way of taste on only a three-minute steep, requiring at least four to give it the muscatel lean and floral finish. However, by “poor”, I mean by Indian white standards…that still makes it kinda great. Glad to have it in my arsenal.
