From teakruthi

Pure Ceylon White ‘Silver Needle’ tea
Loose leaf · From Ruhuna (a.k.a. Southern or Matara) region

Ceylon Ivory is the treasured treat that is pure Ceylon White tea and is crafted with the utmost care: it is hand-plucked, naturally withered and gently hand-rolled before firing. Made from the first leaf of a pea shoot from the clone, Ceylon Ivory is fresh, light, mild, and nutty in flavour, and appears pale yellow in cloud. This tea offers a pure drinking experience that is delicate in both flavour and aroma.

Health benefits of our Ceylon Ivory tea

Ceylon Ivory is one of our best solutions for loss and fat burning. Similar to green teas, Ceylon Ivory is rich in Catechins that helps boost metabolism and blocks the formation of new fat cells while boosting lipolysis that breakdown fat.

I’m hoping everyone stays safe and healthy! Scary times.
Thanks for the samples, Teakruthi!  These leaves must be the largest that I’ve seen even in a white tea!  Impossible to measure with a teaspoon so I just threw a ton of leaves in the infuser.  Probably a small handful in my smallish hand.    I’ve tried this a couple times using different parameters.  The scent of the dry leaves is like the sweetest pile of hay in sunshine. The flavor is very light, so light it is tough to describe: light, full of minerals, smooth.  It’s like a blank slate of a tea, more than most teas I’ve tried, which can be a good thing or not depending what you’re in the mood to drink.  If you are simply craving a lovely white tea, this is a good one to try.  I had to steep it the way Teakruthi recommended, and really this is impossible to oversteep.  I will dock some points due to the comparisons between price & simpleness of flavor, however.
Steep #1   // 39 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
Steep #2  // 16 minutes after boiling //  1 1/2 min
Second steep session:
Steep #1   // 28 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
Steep #2  // 16 minutes after boiling //  5 minute steep
