White tea from the Darjeeling region of India. A rare treat from the Avongrove estate, nestled along the picturesque slopes of the Himalayas. Similar in appearance to the justly-revered Silver Needle tea of China, the Darjeeling version is equally sublime. Composed solely of the tender unopened buds gathered in the second flush of early summer, this is an outstanding tea that fuses the gentle sweetness of white with a boisterous touch of muscatel. We promise, your taste buds will be singing.
Steep at 195° for 3-5 minutes.
