From The Handunudoga Estate

This is a tea completely untouched by hand and follows an ancient Chinese Ritual where the choicest of teas were offered as a tribute to the Emperor. During the Tsong and Tsang dynasties of 5th and 6th century B.C. This tea is rich in anti oxidants and is said to be the healthiest tea in the world. SGS of Switzerland has done an analysis which reveals that our Virgin White has an anti oxidant content of 10.11 percent,which is said to be the the highest naturally occurring content of anti oxidants in any beverage. Marriage Freres which is perhaps one of the world’s most exclusive Tea Salons situated at Faubourg Saint Honore in Central Paris has contracted with us to buy the stocks of White tea.

It’s been three years since I last revisited this white tea, but last week, I’ve been having it in spades. At first, it was to fill a notch in my “White Tea Week” series of blogs, but then it became my go-to evening picker-upper. Arguably the most expensive white tea out there, it has an extremely wonderful flavor of fruit, spice and wine that holds up to almost-boiling water. (In fact, that’s what the Sri Lankan estate recommended.)

I’m glad I had a second crack at this.

Sounds wonderful. It looks like Mariage Frère’s Thé Blanc Sacré is the same as this tea? Maybe I will pick some up when it becomes available again…

Just looked that up. Whadd’ya know! It IS the same tea! Although, according to the Mariage bio, it’s from a “secret” estate. I would hardly call it a secret.
