Okayti Silver Needle Darjeeling Second Flush Organic White Tea

 

Okayti Silver Needle Darjeeling Second Flush Organic White Tea

Handpicked from the tender portions of select tea bushes, just before sunrise, this white tea is a luxurious elegance. A class apart from teas produced at this time of the year, the fluffy silver needles are loaded with natural flavours found only in select white teas. The grassy notes are fused with the sweetness of honey which escalates with every roll of your tongue. The pale, almost colourless, liquor has an evolved character to taste. If you love white tea, you should not miss this.
