For the free tasting this week we will try some unique Indian and Sri Lankan black teas. Each one comes from a different growing region, and each tea offers a unique experience, from the dry leaves all the way to the delicious brew. We will sample a 1st flush darjeeling which will be light and grassy with the special flavor darjeeling is known for. We will sample a superior grade Assam tea which will be rich, malty, and smooth, with a sweet aftertaste. Finally, we will taste a superior grade Ceylon tea which is dark and earthy with a slight bite like dark chocolate.
Organic Peony White, Peony White, also known as Bai Mu Dan, is a delicate white tea from Fujian province in southern China. This tea is made of very young tea buds and the young leaves that emerge close to the sprout in early spring. As with all white teas, there is minimal processing. After harvest, the leaves and buds are withered and dried in the sun, giving it a short time to oxidize. This natural process gives the tea a warm, rich sweetness. This tea proves that white tea is not synonymous with pale flavor! The aroma is floral with a hint of fruit blossoms
Silver Needle, Silver Needle (also known as Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is made of only tea buds picked in early spring. After being meticulously hand picked from the stem, the buds are fanned and dried in the sun before being lightly fired over charcoal at a very low heat, which serves to finish drying the tea while preserving its beautiful silver color. The sweetest of white teas, Silver Needle will coat your mouth with a clean, smooth sweetness. Since production is limited, this is a rare treat that is not to be missed!
