This rare spring tea is made using the stretching bud and first two leaves of the tea plant. Harvested just as the plant awakes from winter dormancy, it is minimally processed in order to preserve its natural freshness. Low in caffeine and high in antioxidants, it has delicate aroma with a surprisingly thick body. As with all whites, it has a wonderful sweetness. The unique twist of this tea is a green taste similar to honey melon, which can be attributed to the unique Kumaon soils.
