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 is low in caffeine.

This 'virgin’ Ceylon loose leaf 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, our luxury Ceylon silver tips is a delicate treat for all the senses and is usually enjoyed on special occasions.

Ingredients: Pure Ceylon White Tea.

 

Region & Time of Harvest

A gentle tea
Tuesday, 23 February 2021  |  Sarah

I wasn稚 sure what to expect from this tea, never having tried anything similar. It is delicious. A soft and gentle tea with a calming flavour. I like drinking it in the afternoon. A great alternative to dark tea.

Very Smooth
Tuesday, 15 December 2020  |  Suzanne

This tea is very smooth to the palate in fact so much so that after the first infusion (which I recommend you need to do for at least ten minutes ) it痴 so smooth that you might think it lacks character but I think it痴 just a really good cup of tea without the bitterness you can get from white teabags you get from the supermarket. However it seems after the second infusion there痴 more flavour with definite hints of honey. A pleasant tea if you have time in the morning to let the flavour come out.
