Tasting Note & Distinctive Features
A rare and handmade white tea from Nuwara Eliya region of Ceylon, grown at 6,000 feet elevation. The tender buds of the tea plant are hand picked at dawn, carefully carried in a silk pouch and entirely handmade. The buds are sun dried and carefully hand rolled, producing the characteristic silver, needle-like buds, with velvety texture. Their pale brew is surpassingly light, and delicate, elusive and mild on the palate with a touch of a "greenish" seasonal high grown character in the finish. The beauty of the infused buds adds to the pleasure of this unique brew.
White Tea is the delicate, tender bud of two leaves; the bud, which provides best quality in tea. It is about 3 cm in length and white in its appearance. We call it Silver Tips in Sri Lanka. The annual crop of Silver Tips is 1700 kilos while, the regular tea crop is 325 million kilos! Silver Tips is only a mere fraction of the total crop. Its price is accordingly unique as white tea is a limited edition product.
Dilmah White tea is 100% Ceylon White Tea. Ceylon Silver Tips is a very rare tea, extremely limited in production; just a few hundred kilos per year. This rarity comes at a price and sadly because of this, most of the white teas offered around the world are adulterated; sometimes containing less than 2% of white tea. Dilmah White tea is Real White Tea offering consumers the subtle and very refined experience of this exclusive beverage.
