An exquisite specialty tea with sweet notes of honeysuckle.
Drawing from the mist that rises off the River Rungeet in the month of April, this light White tea is made from only the most tender shoots plucked from fields in Glenburn that grow their prized clonal bushes. The leaves remain intact even as they are infused for the brew. This specialty tea is made in very small batches using only the most experienced tea pickers. It is manufactured with extreme care in a process similar to a White Tea that preserves all its health giving properties. Though closest to a white tea, it almost defies classification. The cup is a clear bright lemon in color, light and subtle on the palate with floral and citrus undertones.
Floral top notes develop into complex citrus fruit flavors, ending with just a hint of cool mint.
Dry Leaf Appearance: Delicately rolled leaves showing an abundance of long silver buds.
Wet Leaf Aroma: Heady with sweet, floral perfume notes.
Liquor: Pale golden.
HOW TO BREW

There in the hills of Darjeeling, tea rises out of the magical landscape imbibing the essence of the eternal Himalayas. In the peace and tranquility of Glenburn a flourishing community of people and tea bushes thrive together as they have done for the past 150 years.
