Twinings Tea Tasters – Okayti White Darjeeling Loose Tea
June 28, 2016 Twinings
A Tasting Class for Okayti White Darjeeling Loose Tea: http://www.Twinings.co.uk/teatasters
This is a refreshing, well balanced and superbly luxurious white tea with soft citrus undertones. The name "white tea" derives from the fine silvery-white hairs on the unopened buds of the tea plant, which give the plant a whitish appearance. The reason behind this name change? The answer lies in the plantation’s rich royal history. Apparently, when this tea was served at Buckingham Palace it was called an ‘Okay tea’ which became the ‘Okayti’ we know today. For this tasting I have used a fine Telja glass teapot and a silver-plated tea strainer which are available through our online tea shop.
