Tea Story

Our Rare Ceylon Silver Tips are made with carefully handpicked, single origin, un-opened buds that are sun-dried in the misty hills of Ceylon. The velvety silver lined leaf contains a very high level of polyphenols, antioxidants and are low in caffeine.

This 'virgin’ Ceylon white tea is grown in the Imboolpittiya garden, located in the town ‘Nawalapitiya’ in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. Nawalapitiya lies in Sri Lanka’s beautiful mountains that are world-renowned for their exceptional teas. This vast area is made up of extensive high-elevation mountain ranges and beautiful valleys that are shaded from monsoon winds. Imboolpitiya’s silver tips tea is famed amongst tea connoisseurs for its outstanding quality and sublime flavour complexity.

The tea imparts a delicate and very light liquor with exquisite notes of pine and honey. Its brew provides a wonderful mix of subtle and delicate flavours that are very soothing and relaxing. These luxurious silver tips are rich in fragrance and possess an alluring quality with a hint of natural sweetness.

One of the few white teas produced outside of China, Ceylon silver tips is a delicate treat for all the senses and is usually enjoyed on special occasions.

Ingredients: Pure Ceylon White Tea.

The finest of the finest

The cup is very light and it tastes exquisitly fine. Has to be prepared like green tea and can be used for a second infusion for another great taste. Due to the price, I only offer Silver Tips to myself on special occasions, and I love it every single time.
