Sandkuphu Silver Tips
Sandakphu is the highest peak in West Bengal and it is claimed by both India and Nepal. This small tea garden takes its name from the mountain and is known for its single variety teas. Laboriously plucked from a single clonal variety on the first day of summer, this tea is an exceptional expression of a hand-crafted Nepali tea. A neat sage green and silver leaf delivers a smooth and sweet flavor reminiscent of cooked peas. There is a mild astringency, a slightly smoky essence and a lingering finish. Plucking date: June 24, 2011.
