Worthy of the expertise of Mr. He, this superb white tea is of uniform, smooth and fine buds.

The infusion offers rich flavors of oats, fruit (ripe banana) and flowers, nuanced in the mouth by a peppery accent. Its rosy liquor is sweet, oily and full. Well balanced, it evolves to a minty and thirst quenching finish. To be savoured in tranquillity!

This lot is exclusive to our tea house and produced according to our specifications.

Kenya Kapkoros

Here is a beautiful white tea with silky buds from the Rift Valley in Kenya. This terroir has the ideal climatic conditions for growing tea. Amongst these, our favourite, the high altitude. A Chinese cultivar was established there to produce this Yin Zhen style and the result is simply magnificent.
