Fully greenish/silvery & velvety Silver Tips.
Light green longish buds with tints of brown & copper with the soft vegetal nose.
A celebratory limited-edition Tea passionately made from most delicate and select buds plucked on International Tea Day at the Donyi Polo (literally meaning Sun-Moon in the local language) estate in Arunachal Pradesh in north-eastern India which also has the distinction of having been sold at a record price at the Speciality Pan-India auction held in June. This picturesque estate, lying in the quaint foothills, produces superb teas only during certain seasons, and this variety being one of the best amongst them. Velvety & designer Silver Tips, brew a cup that has a very pale liquor and comes with a mildly sweetish & sour taste with hints of vegetal elements to arouse the palate. A very soft and subtle variant of a White Tea that is not only outstanding and delicious but also highly health-beneficial - this limited edition offering.
