2020 Spring Wild White Tea
Grown in the wilderness of Manipur, this tea from very old plants are mother nature's gift to us. It has been one of our most awaited teas yet, after the last years harvest sold out way earlier than expected!
The tea starts floral and fruity with hints of fresh coriander leaves and spearmint. The spice notes are soothing and present just on the finish. The fruit notes are reminiscent of litchi, green apples and kiwi. The flowery notes are dominant in yellow flowers with a hint of honeysuckle. There is a hint of sandalwood in the later steeps which blends seamlessly with the flowery character. The liquor coats your mouth and is extremely silky.
Like most of the ancient tree teas we offer from Manipur, the tasting notes dont bring out the whole story and the real magic is in the liquor where all these notes come together to create a symphony of tastes! Brew it any style you like, this tea will make sure you enjoy the taste!
