Spring harvest white tea from the old tea tree forests of Manipur, India. After 3 months of rest, the thick and juicy buds are plucked from the trees and makes for a thick liquor each and every year. We are happy to offer this tea for wholesale as it is one of the best representations of Manipur old tree forests.
The defining feature of this tea is the silky thick liquor and a good balance of floral and ripe fruits with a hint of spice on the finish. This one is no different, the dry leaf has a floral aroma resembling white rose and lilies. The same aroma intensifies when placed on heated ware. The wet leaf give you a burst of ripe fruit notes like guava which translate well into the first infusion. The floral note is hard to pinpoint although it comes close to white flower perfumes.
