Ceylon Silver Needle White Tea


A lovely sweet Silver Needle tea from Ceylon made from small buds plucked early, with a smooth sweet honeydew melon taste which lingers in the mouth.

Sourced direct from Forest Hill Tea, a Sri Lankan tea producer who have invested heavily in creating a sustainable tea industry in the local area in the foothills of Adam's Peak.

They were established with the explicit goal of maximising local income generation while promoting environmental stewardship. To that end they:

  • Employ local women in their tea factory and profit share with them
  • Pay premium prices to local small holder farmers for their tea leaves
  • Encourage the farmers to preserve and restore the local forest
