This rare and delicate Darjeeling White Peony is an exotic White Tea from Gopaldhara Tea Estate. This tea is made during the first flush season when the buds and leaves are the youngest. These young buds and leaves are needed to produce this beautiful white tea. They are treated with great care after harvest to preserve the fine white hair present on the leaves. This makes harvesting the tea time-consuming and production of very small batches which leads to the process becoming expensive.
Instead of rolling and oxidizing, this tea is sun-dried in a controlled method that preserves its unforgettable smooth, creamy and fruity texture. The picturesque dry leaves are greenish-grey in appearance with lots of silvery tips which brew into a pale yellow-green colored liquor. A hint of honey and notes of wildflowers can also be felt in this tea.
When it comes to health benefits this tea has maximum antioxidant content and the lowest amount of caffeine content in it, which makes it healthier. It is also packed with polyphenols that act as antioxidants and protect our body from oxidative damage.
