Glenburn Estate Moonshine White Tea is from the famous tea-producing Darjeeling Region in the foothills of the Himalayas in the state of West Bengal in northeastern India. Established around 1859, the 1600-acre estate is located at about 3,200 feet and is planted with the Camellia sinensis sinensis variety of the tea plant. The garden uses sustainable agricultural practices and is a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership, a tea-specific fair trade organization. As such, it provides living and working conditions that exceed those required by Indian law, a hospital and schools for the workers’ children.
Spring-harvested tea that is plucked during the first flush in April. This exquisite tea is produced in limited quantity in very small batches.
Beautiful, large, multi-colored leaves and silver downy buds are expertly and carefully processed. They yield a delicate, clean, smooth and light-bodied infusion that is aromatic and sweet with fresh, floral and citrus notes.
