Pure Ceylon white 'Golden Tips' tea | Loose leaf
Nuwera Eliya Region
This tea is a special type of ‘Gold Tips’ White Tea and has undergone a very special, careful process to give it its fine, splendid flavor. Ceylon Gold harvested from a young tea bush, before the buds have opened. From there, the buds are dried in natural sunlight, allowing the tips to maintain their velvety golden color. Since the young buds are so delicate, they are handled with the utmost care. This tea is from an estate in Hatton in Nuwera Eliya. It is western high grown, and displays a brownish gold color in the cup. This fine tea boasts a light, fine, tart flavor that we can only attribute to the time and care dedicated to harvesting and processing this tea.
