This beautiful tea is cultivated at altitudes of 1200 to 2100 feet, and it is produced by hand. After picking, the tea is left overnight to dry in the cool, spring air; it is then gently rolled. This tea is grown in Nepal on the peaks adjacent to the famous town of Darjeeling in India. This tea is smooth and delicate with a bright, fruity finish. A unique offering, this white tea provides the smooth, downy character of a Silver Needle, with the crisp finish of a first flush Darjeeling.
