Only a handful of kilograms of this rare specialty Assam tea were produced, and we're very pleased to have acquired a portion of this stellar crop. The leaves are crafted entirely by hand, from the extra fine plucking to the final sort and packing. The result is an exquisite selection composed entirely of golden tips. The heady aroma is rich, and foretells a robust and satisfying cup. Quantities are very limited.
