Rare LaKyrsiew Cloud Tea - First Flush Organic Black Tea
Fresh from the steep, high altitude Khasi Hills of the LaKyrsiew Tea Garden Estate in the tiny province of Megahalaya in the North East corner of India comes this rare opportunity to taste this delightful 2017 first flush organic Cloud Tea. Taking the best of both what the Darjeeling and Assam districts have to offer, this exceptional quality tea is a unique, delicate taste experience all its own. Excellent quality teas of this type are a truly delightful experience and extremely hard to come by - especially in Canada.
Tea gardens can only produce a small quantity of First Flush. As its name implies, this tea is only produced once a year when the tea bushes spring out of their winter dormancy. If Darjeeling Teas are considered the "Champagne of Teas" this luxury LaKyrsiew First Flush Organic Single Estate tea is the "Dom Perignon of teas" - at a fraction of the cost. Note: Limited quantity available.
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.
