Introducing another exclusive white tea from Arunachal Pradesh, a source that we have been trying to track down for many years now. ( Look up Diamond Dew the other premium white tea from here. )
Arunachal Pradesh is a state in the remotest part of eastern India. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas it borders China, Myanmar and Bhutan it is a pristine area. Unfortunately, it is considered a "sensitive border area" and outside visitors even Indian nationals need special permit from the government to enter this area.
The main difference between Diamond Dew and White Gold is that the latter is made up of a bud and a leaf, giving it a bit more body. Diamond Dew is made up entirely of only buds.
DRY LEAF: A bud and a leaf combination reminiscent of the Chinese white peony tea. Earthy and sweet fruity notes tease the nose.
WET LEAF: Notes of plum, maple syrup heighten the anticipation.
CUP: The golden liquor has alluring notes of plum and maple syrup that make for an exquisite indulgence. The interplay of the sweet and the earthy undertones awakens your senses, invigorating your taste buds with refreshing and lively sensations. We also got subtle nutty notes that added depth and texture to the overall taste experience. This is an enchanting tea even to the most discerning tea connoisseur!
