This rare second flush tea from Sandakphu is hand-picked from select tea bushes with high chlorophyll content and valuable antioxidants. One leaf and a bud are plucked and are immediately placed in a withering truck in the fields with a supply of cold air. After one hour, the leaves go through a one-minute de-enzyming process, which halts the oxidation. The leaves are put into a roller, then a shaper, producing the beautiful half-moon pearls. During steeping, they unfurl to their lovely full leaves, creating a pale green, mild infusion. This is a fresh-tasting tea with sweet grassy and vegetal aromas and flavor.
