White Assam, a rare white tea made in the Chinese Yin Zhen way. Only the long, tender leaf buds are meticulously plucked in spring and then naturally dried in the sun, producing beautiful, long, white, velvety needles. This wonderful tea has a light, bright and delicate character but with a recognisably subtle malty flavour, true of Assam teas. Packed with antioxidants this white tea is also extremely healthy. Stunning !

” an amazing tea to look at, furry tentacles in soft shades of grey and green, the brew is a delicate yellow colour, I could get subtle hints of malt, hay, and fruit which gave me a tea that was clean and easy-drinking”
“this is not your run of the mill tea, pricey, but worth every penny, 4 infusions later and the taste is full and delicious”
“this tea was delicious, I thoroughly enjoyed it hot, but drank at room temperature, sublime………………”
