Sandakphu Silver is a fantastic example of a classic Nepalese spring white tea. It is dried under the moonlight, which is reflected in its vibrant, golden orange liquor. Fragrant notes of green grape, honeysuckle, and toasted almond are accented by notes of clover honey and nectarine. It is a tea that you will want to enjoy over and over again.
A classic Nepali white tea, the barely exposed young leaves reveal down-like white hairs. One leaf and a bud are plucked during the spring harvest. Because Nepal’s teas have a long period of dormancy, they have been shown to be higher in antioxidants than teas from other countries once hand-plucked, the tea is withered in a trough and dried in the moonlight. Sandakphu Silver has a fresh, fruity aroma. Its flavor balances subtle notes of stone fruit with a satisfying, nutty finish.
One heaping teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 2 minutes, then steep tea 3 - 4 minutes.
