From The Assam Tea Company

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.

Brewing white tea to taste perfect for your palate is somewhat of an art. Start with the lower numbers recommended above (175°F | 3 min | 2-gms) and twig the three variables upwards to get to the perfect cup.

Single origin, single estate, single white tea buds.

Refreshing, light, airy, just right…not overpowering, just basic and simply tea.
