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.
