Commercial Description

Sample the pure elegance of nature. Harvested two days of the year traditionally, handpicked needle-shaped silvery buds are dried naturally, creating a very pale, unprocessed leaf. Its taste is delicate yet pronounced, with a long balanced sweetness. This is an exquisite tea to appreciate by itself.

If you like white teas (so pale - must steep longer.) this is a safe choice and has not only a light grassy note but I got "flowers" - or maybe even honey if that's not reaching too far.

I let it steep forever - over 5 minutes and it was still so pale, but it is, after all, a white tea.

Rich in antioxidants. Like most Ito-En (Japanese) it's not too expensive and easy to find in NYC and Philly.
