Add to my notebook

This white tea is the result of a unique combination of a harvest from assamica tea plants from Darjeeling, and the expertise of Mr Subba, manager of the garden. Silky buds offer a heady brew with fragrances of flowers and cocoa. Its brilliant light yellow liquid, finely tart, enhances its grassy character (dry straw, sorrel) with generous fruity notes. Subtle notes of malt and hazelnut support the finish of this substantial and complex tea. a Totally smooth experience!
