Billimalai Special Winter Frost White Tea

description

Made from the high-quality B/5/63 clone, this white tea is about pleasant flavors and a velvety smooth texture. Made by wilting under steam, the tea has a noticeable vegetal taste that’s uncommon in Indian white teas. However, the choice of clone ensures the cup fluid, well-rounded, slightly sweet, and immensely pleasant on the senses.
