An atypical tea reminiscent of Chinese white teas due to the withering process. It also recalls the aromatic notes of floral and fruit characteristic of oolong. Harvested in the Columbian Andes, it is a quite unique Grand Cru.
A delicious white tea with highly balanced honeyed, fruity and vanilla fragrances which develop against a very round texture.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
