A delightful tea crafted by workers meticulously hand twisting and tying tea leaves together to form a 'blue nettle'. The leaves within the 'blue nettle' show varying levels of oxidisation and as a result the tea exhibits characteristics typical to white, oolong and black teas!
It has the lightness usually associated with white teas combined with very gentle apricot tones usually found within Indian subcontinent oolongs and a malty (yet gentle) finish to typical to black teas.
