Introducing our exquisite premium white tea from a source that we have been trying to track down for many years now. We are also very excited about its top notch quality! This amazing tea will transport you to a realm of pure tea bliss!
The tea comes from Arunachal Pradesh, a state in the remotest part of India. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas it borders China, Myanmar and Bhutan. Because it is considered a "sensitive border area", outside visitors even Indian nationals need special permit from the government to enter this area.
The pristine nature of this place is reflected in this heavenly brew with its vegetal brightness, sweet corn essence, plum sophistication, and earthy undertones. We have a very limited stock of this tea.

DRY LEAF: Small tips covered by silvery down that show great care in plucking and processing. Sweet and a delicate earthy aroma rise from the dry leaf.
WET LEAF: Notes of sweet corn, plum and a vegetal brightness greets the nose.
CUP: Light golden color that yields a harmonious dance of flavors. The initial impression is one of a gentle vegetal brightness that awakens your palate, followed by a distinct sweetness, reminiscent of freshly picked sweet corn. A delicate essence of plum weaves its way into the blend. Each sip reveals a touch of fruity elegance, adding a sophisticated layer of flavor that enhances the overall experience.
Marrying the flavors together is a mild, earthy undertone that provides a solid foundation to the tea's character.
