This tea is from the Darjeeling region of India, where it is picked and rolled by hand and then set out to dry in the sun. It must be grown at high altitudes with lots of moisture to achieve the right flavour. Thus this white tea is the most natural form of tea, it has not undergone any processing. Darjeeling White Tea is produced in limited quantities, making it quite expensive.

Darjeeling White is smooth and refreshing, has a delicate aroma and brews to a pale gold with a mellow taste.It has a hint of sweetness and a boisterous touch of muscatel.

Add a minute or two to each subsequent steep. A fine-quality silver needles tea will yield four to seven infusions with each having a unique flavor palate - making it well worth the extra cost.
Assam White is naturally sweet with a distinct malty flavour. This tea has a much lighter flavour than black tea and is rich in antioxidants. It is extremely refreshing. From Assam India.
