Darjeeling Special Spring Silver Needle White Tea

description

The Darjeeling silver needle white tea is in a class of its own. It’s a tea to be tried, to fully understand and appreciate its nuances. Here, we have one of the finest silver needles of the season. It’s wonderfully representative of this type of teas - lightly floral, a bit creamy and smooth textured.
