Pine Needle Black Tea – Connoisseur Collection
Out of stock
Named for the cloudy mist that shroud the gardens every day during the summer, the Mt. Cloudy Tea Estates produces a top-quality tea in the springtime. The tea gets its name from a special process that “shakes” the tender leaves so that they resemble the fine needles of a pine tree. A slow baking at 60° to 100° brings out the undertones of rose and then leads to a delicate cocoa-like sweetness.
