The delicate scent of rose
A sweet harmony of flavour
The essence of Darjeeling
Rare and precious leaves
Grown on a special plantation on the venerable Makaibari Tea Estate and harvested at the beginning of spring, Silver Tips, which take their name from their delicate silver hairs, are some of the most prized leaves in all of Darjeeling. These fresh leaves, delicately rolled by hand, are not generally available on the marketplace and can usually only be purchased by special order.
