This high-grown tea is one of the most delicately processed white teas we've seen in a long time. The consistent brightness of the green-colored leaves indicates the care taken while plucking and drying. This attention to detail prevents bruising, which would turn the leaves brown and destroy the tea's complex, delicate flavor notes.  Enjoy it hot or cold-brewed!

    • Because there is no cell-breakage, this tea retains its freshness and its bright green color
    • Because the leaves aren't broken, the tea remains lightweight and bulky (not dense), and therefore takes up much more volume in comparison with broken, processed, or shaped tea leaves
    • Unlike the White Peony and Silver Needle white teas from China, this tea has less notes of fresh hay, and more of a lingering flavor of pea shoots and orchid
    • Nepali tea is mostly produced in the eastern region of Ilam, a rich agricultural district in the foothills of the Himalayas, just west of Nepal's border with the famous tea-growing region of Darjeeling, India
    • Tea has been grown in Nepal for just about as long as it has been in  Darjeeling (mid 19th century), but political turmoil has stifled Nepal's ability to grow its tea industry until the mid-twentieth century
