#349 Forty miles from the southern tip of the subcontinent and isolated within a pristine tropical rainforest, Oothu was the first tea garden in India to adopt biodynamic tea cultivation. This white tea is partially oxidized, showing splendid colors of green, russet, and pale brown. In the cup, a delightful and pungent earthiness with nutty undertones awaits. A smooth affair, with an intensity rarely seen in a white tea.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (2 heaping teaspoons) per 8 oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 70°C/158°F. Allow to brew 2 min.
