Refreshing, light, airy, just right…not overpowering, just basic and simply tea.
Soft sweetish malty flavor gives a distinct Assam tea profile to this extremely hard to manufacture white tea from our tea garden, Satrupa. The body is light, the brew has a soft off-white color, and leaves a silky, velvety mouthfeel.
Satrupa Tea Estate is in Upper Assam, at the eastern-most part of the Assam region. This area has rich red loom soil, year-round tropical wet climate, and old-growth forest all around. Satrupa is on the periphery of the last contiguous rainforest tracts in the Eastern Himalayas.
