Pure Ceylon black & white 'Silver Needle' tea | Loose leaf
Ruhuna (a.k.a. Southern or Matara) Region | Orange Pekoe One (OP1)
We picked this low grown from a region between sea level and 600m. This tea is flowery and light, and dark copper in color. Black and white teas are combined in this blend for unique, contrasting flavors that cannot help but harmonize together. Much care has gone into this blend: the black leaves are delicate and wiry and produce a refined taste, while the white tea leaves were naturally withered and gently hand-rolled before firing. Our Blissful Harmony blend has a smooth, malty taste, and is perfect for any time of day — morning or night.

Blissful Harmony- What a great suprise!
Truthfully I have never really been a white tea drinker, but this blend idea intrigued me. I am new to teakruthi so I order 3 teas and 2 samples, this being one of the samples. It is probably my favorite tea. It is bright, clear and has a light aromatic appeal. The flavor is delicate and one that can be savored. It is good hot or cold. And, because I brew at home with my filtered water and take to work, I often reheat my tea. Tasted almost as good as fresh, which is an outstanding quality.
Mixing Up My World
I was delighted to try the Blissful Harmony and I had no idea what to expect. It was amazing and the flavor was mellow and there was an every so slight touch of cinnamon or spice that I could taste. You know it was not added because you are getting only single origin teas here. Not one or the other over powered each other as it was as the title suggests a “Blissful Harmony”. I liked it so much I’ll be buying more in the very near future and see that mixing of these and other varieties as possibly the next up and coming desire of tea lovers!
Delicate and Smooth Light Bodied Tea
This blend is well executed; the black and white tea flavors really do harmonize when you pay attention to them. The black tea dominates the front half of the taste experience with a mellow maltiness that hints at meadow flowers. The white tea harmonizes in the middle with a buouyant fruitiness. These crisp fruit flavors (like apples and honeydew melon) brush up against a slight woody astringency toward the finish. The aftertaste is clean, sweet and fruity/floral; quite calming and refreshing. I brewed this as directed for 4 minutes and was able to get a second (6 minute) steep as well. I had to take care when selecting the leaves that I got a good mix of the black and white. This tea is remarkable when you pay attention to it, but it lacks true standout flavors that draw you in. I recommend brewing this one when you have time to sit and sip and contemplate.
Superb and Consistent Quality
Delightful, delicate tea for quiet time alone or sharing with good friends. The quality of Blissful Harmony and the price make it the perfect gift! Will be buying again for myself and as gifts. For a more in-depth review of this tea check out my personal review here: http://wp.me/p7McLX-st
