White tea – India

R130.00

Breaking tradition

I’m from Bihar, India, where tea was not traditionally grown. In the ‘90s, tea farmers were invited here to boost the economy. My plantation, the Doke Tea Estate, was one of the first. It soon began offering teas – like me – with a fruity aroma and refreshing flavour unique to the lush terrain.

I’m farmed alongside the Doke River, where I’m shaded by trees with anti-microbial properties – no pesticides or herbicides required!

 

Ingredients: Fresh, young needle-shaped buds covered in a delicate silvery down. (30G – 60 cups).

Flavour: Delicately sweet, creamy and full-bodied with hints of peach blossom and dried apricot.

Aroma: Ripe stone fruit and fresh straw.

Health benefits: I’m kind to your liver, kidneys and heart.
