DESCRIPTION

SPRING 2015 HARVEST -- White teas from Darjeeling are relatively rare in any given year. This year's Arya Pearl First Flush Organic White Darjeeling is the first to have arrived for sale in the U.S. and we think it's the best white tea of the region's limited crop for 2015. We are the only purveyor in the United States to offer this rare extraordinary first flush tea - but our allotment is very limited. Plucked by hand in March 2015, it received the highest rating: SFTGFOP1
Arya Pearl's dry leaves are needle-like in shape and vibrant sage in color. Their aroma is profoundly fresh and savory-sweet; it features such abundant and exotic notes of white pepper, sakura, yuzu, juniper, toasted hazelnuts and fresh-broken clover. Its savory-sweet balance continues through the hazy infusion, which bears delicate, sweet flavors of baked vanilla pastries and green cardamom, as well as savory notes of alfalfa hay. In contrast to its light flavor, the mouthfeel is surprisingly heavy... viscous, even. The full, downy buds of the tea make a cup more invigorating than might meet the eye. The second infusion is milder, sweeter and more floral, and nutmeg replaces clover as the dominant flavor note. A rarity like Organic Arya Pearl is best enjoyed on its own. However, if you want to pair it with food, try it with something understated, like sourdough bread brushed with extra virgin olive oil or just-ripe d'Anjou pears.

This tea is certified USDA Organic.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5.00 you can have your tea packed in a black or white tea canister.
