A great price for a rare single estate Darjeeling white tea!
Price: From $12.95 to $99.00
The Poobong Estate was the first Darjeeling garden to produce a white tea. This White Darjeeling has been a favorite of our customers since 2002. Only two chests were produced this year and we bought one of them.
Established in the year 1913, Poobong Tea Estate is located at Ghoom Darjeeling, and the teas grow between altitudes of 3000 ft to 5500 ft. The word Poobong means "valley of bamboos" - a reference to an exotic setting where the tea itself grows.
With an estimated area of 500 acres under cultivation, this tea estate produces approximately 70,000 kgs of tea annually. Located in a very picturesque setting, Poobong produces excellent classic Darjeeling teas from its quality China bushes.

This is a smooth and sweet tea, with no other way to explain it other than subtle tones of dehydrated marshmallows. It's truly that sweet. It's honestly my new favorite and quite wonderful.
