This tea is made in Cianjur, Indonesia. It was harvested at over 1,000 metres above sea level. This white tea was made in 2008, and has been stored for 12 years by the grower so it can reveal an extraordinary aromatic complexity over time.
This 12 year old white tea is perfect for fans of whisky thanks to its peaty, vanilla and woody notes and a generous texture which covers the palate.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
