This extremely rare white tea from Nepal is composed solely of the most precious buds. Thriving at similar altitudes as related Darjeeling variants, Himalaya Silver Needle is a true testament to the country's burgeoning orthodox tea scene.
Downy silvery-white needles evoke the Nepalese snow-covered mountain peaks of this "Heaven on Earth," each exquisite to behold. Luminous in the cup, this harmonious tea has an initial note of wild orchids is followed by fresh flavours similar to mandarin orange; this floral combination fills the palate to produce a most original impression of gentle yet sparkling contrasts. The tea's mouthfeel is smooth and silky, devoid of astringency.
In many ways, it is the Shangri-La of teas – bringing a sense of heavenly serenity and bliss to our everyday lives.
Fresh sweet grass and flowers with a hint of citrus.
