Zomba Pearls

(1 customer review)


This white tea is hand rolled and has a striking profile. Each pearl is created by harvesting a whole-leaf then painstakingly rolling it into a tightly-wrapped pearl followed by carefully drying the pearls in the sun. The tea is truly a labour of love! Due to sun-drying, Zomba Pearls can only be crafted in at limited times, on clear and sunny days. The pearls unfurl beautifully in hot water. The leaves yield countless infusions, with flavours unfolding and developing with each steep.Only 20 kg is produced each year of this unique tea.

    This tea is beautiful. I ordered a combination pack of tea from Tea Rebellion that included Zomba Pearls. Loved it so much, I reordered. Every person to whom I have served this tea has expressed pleasure. Not only is it unique and created with much care, it is the best white tea I have ever experienced. So smooth. It’s hard to explain the flavour profile; subtly earthy with some sweetness. It feels like one is drinking the earth. Highly recommend.
