Harvested from Purple tea leaves in Pinglin by Buddhist monks. This experimental tea is a departure from other White Teas, in taste and character; it speaks in cracked black pepper and whispers of sea grass. For all its boldness, its finish is light and readying. This tea is like Salvador Dali, a perfect piece for conversation, and aperitif.
