A truly unique tea which is composed almost exclusively of stems, it produces an incredibly smooth and sweet taste composed of lychees and honey. An incredible tea which is completely unlike any other tea produced in both material used to produce it and taste.
Satemwa Antlers throws out the rule book on what is the best part of the tea plant to use to produce the best tea. It has been thought that the buds followed by the top leaves were the best part of the plant to use and that any tea which contained stems is of low quality. Satemwa Antlers being composed purely of stems turns this thinking upside down and once more proves that there are no definitives in the tea world.
