description

Billimali never fails to deliver the finest cups during the winter. Only a handful of teas make it to our list during the cold season. And what’s special about these teas is that they are packed with flavor because of the subdued growth of the leaves during the cold season. The leaves and slender silver-haired buds of this white tea are full of flavor and aroma. This white is exceptionally light and smooth and the flavors are nuanced. Sweet and mellow notes starts the cup and delightful floral hints give the cup a certain depth and complexity which is characteristic of a Nilgiri white. The experience becomes creamy toward the end making you want to get another cup full.
