Darjeeling Balasun Second Flush Peony White Tea 2023

Presenting an extraordinary Darjeeling White Tea 2023, a truly rare and exotic gem sourced from the esteemed Balasun Tea Estate. This particular white tea demands the use of only the youngest buds and leaves. Instead of oxidizing the tea, we have chosen a meticulous sun-drying method that preserves its remarkable smoothness, creaminess, and fruity essence. The visually enchanting dry leaves display a delightful greenish-grey hue adorned with an abundance of silvery tips, culminating in a pale yellow infusion when brewed. Indulging in this tea reveals subtle notes of honey, citrus, and vanilla, adding to its irresistible appeal.
