Background Knowledge

Estates from India and Nepal to Africa have begun to grow their own, unique white tea specialties all along the spectrum of our favorite drink‘s lighter shades. This particular – and award-winning – first-flush variant hails from Kenya and is a prime example of how the Chinese orthodox tradition is spawning new and exciting variants of beloved classics. This silver needle, or sindano in Swahili, contains only the tenderest buds of the early spring harvest, sun-dried at low temperatures to retain its unique flavor and beautiful white down. As with all gems, this one was not the easiest to find, though its intriguingly complex flavor profile makes it well worth the effort – see, sip and savor for yourself.
