From MAJANI

White teas are considered by many to be the most premium of teas. They are the most subtle and are the least processed. They are known for being smooth, delicate and lightly sweet. Although they can be steeped longer than most other teas without developing bitterness, traditionally they are enjoyed in several infusions rather than one extended one. White Teas are very low in caffeine and contain high concentrations of tea catechins and the L-Theanine Amino Acid. In Kenya white teas are a specialty item. Our white tea offering is very gentle and divinely good!

Sawa Organic White Tea has a subtle, clean, lightly sweet tea has a toasty, buttery citrus aroma with a softly sweet, very smooth earthy nuttiness on the palate.

Sipdown, 239. This sample comes to me thanks to Kasumi no Chajin! Pretty sure this is the first white tea from Africa that I have ever tried.

The leaf on this is long, fuzzy white tea leaves that are whole and thus difficult to meaure out with a teaspoon. I think I used more leaf than usual for a western-style brew, but it didn’t seem to be over steeping after 2 minutes so I went the full three. It’s still a very pale yellow, and smells fruity and a little nutty, even. The flavor is light, and I probably could have steeped it even longer, but it is still quite lovely as is. Possibly my favorite non-jasmine white that I’ve ever tried! It is so sweet on its own, and I agree with apricots as the fruit that it most reminds me of. The flavors are tantalizing, and keep you sipping again and again so that they build in your mouth. A really impressive tea!

Dry leaves: The needles are slender and slightly green with very fine hairs. They have a very nice apricot-like aroma

Tasting: This tea is very crisp, mellow, and sweet! The taste is mildly fruity with flavors of apricot, honey, and a slight marine sea breeze salinity. While its definitely silver needle, its noticeably different from its Chinese counterparts.

Thanks Kasumi!
