nilgiri silver tip

a very special white tea from korakundah estate

This rare tea is made to order on the Korakundah estate, which is one of the highest and most remote in the world at an altitude of 8000 feet in the beautiful Nilgiri Hills of South India. The Korakundah estate is certified organic.

This is a rare example of white tea - only the finest leaves are plucked and then produced with great care and the minimum of manufacture.

Its attractive well rolled leaf delivers a sweet and soft flavour that is really delicious.

We think that only the finest bone china cup will do for this very special tea.

The Great Taste Award judges awarded it 1 star, commenting that it is:

"A beautiful leaf. There is some good, genuine if gentle sweetness here, a floral note and rounded peachy flavours."

Ingredients: white tea

For the perfect cup of tea add 2 teaspoons per cup & pour on near boiling water.  Leave to infuse for 2-5 minutes. No milk necessary. 

10g or 50g silver foil bag
