Tasting Note & Distinctive Features
White Tea is the rarest form of tea, consisting of the bud of the tea leaf, the most tender part of the two leaves and bud which are hand-picked to produce tea. Song Dynasty ‘Tea Emperor’ Hui Zong relished white tea for having the most rare and subtle flavour. White Litchee is hand made from tea buds which are an inch or so long and then tied into a large ‘pearl’ which unfurls when infused. The enjoyment of this Very Special Rare Tea requires the observation of the pearl unfurling, one bud at a time, transforming over 30 seconds or so into a flower of buds.
One of the rarest teas in the world, the Dilmah White Litchee is an exclusive brew that is hand plucked and hand rolled to perfection.
