Though black tea accounts for 99% of tea production in Darjeeling, some tea craftsmen are producing luxurious, delicious and rare white teas in the region.
Our Darjeeling Silver Needle is unlike any white tea you have tasted before; the amount of pride that went into making it is clearly visible in the pointed buds which are slender, whole and delicate. Once steeped the wet leaf has an interesting miso-like, rich mushroom broth aroma; the pale golden ivory liquid will absolutely surprise your taste buds with its light sweetness. The infusion is absolutely complex- it is refreshing, yet with umami richness; it has a velvety smooth mouth feel, soft floral note, with fresh flavors of hay and light honey. Our Darjeeling Silver Needle is beautiful, balanced, sweet and surprising- it is a must have for any fans of either Darjeeling tea or Silver Needle.
