Rare LaKyrsiew Cloud Tea - 2nd Flush Organic Black Tea
You may already be familiar with Darjeeling or Assam Teas, but LaKyrsiew Cloud Tea is the delicate, rare tea of exceptional quality from a tiny corner of North East India in the breathtakingly beautiful Khasi Hills that is being eagerly sought out by tea lovers in-the-know. The province of Meghalaya is called "the Abode of Clouds" in the local dialect, which is why tea from this area is known as Cloud Tea.
Cultivated organically from the start on their ancestral lands, the owners of LaKyrsiew pursue the quality of their tea at the expense of everything else - very fine plucking, careful handling of the green leaf, careful withering and rolling, careful drying and sorting and discarding anything that doesn't meet their standards. The tea is meticulously rolled to keep the beautiful leaves whole. This tender crafting allows the leaves to retain a delicacy and softness that is very rare in black tea.
Tea this fresh is extremely hard to come by in Canada. This exceptional quality 2nd flush LaKyrsview Cloud Tea can be re-steeped at least twice.
