These fine needles of silver, make a cup of exquisite refinedness that is unique as it is exclusive. Pure, handpicked buds from the Purple Camellia Sinesis plant are sundried to create this unfermented, delicate, and fine tea that carries an aroma of green fields and a palate of light floral sweetness, followed by a hint of musk. Apart from its low concentration of caffeine, the 'slow-release' quality of Silver Needles reveal health-boosting compounds and essential minerals across multiple infusions; specifically, the anthocyanin antioxidants which contribute to longevity. Produced in extremely limited quantity by the 'Dalu' Master-Craftsmen, Lumbini Silver Needles is a work of shimmering art that reflects the natural brilliance of the Lumbini Valley.
