Description

Kenya Silvertip White Tea Lelsa Estate is a rare, high-grade Kenya White Tea. It comes from the Lesla Tea Estate, which has long produced outstanding-quality infusions.

This particular Tea is, of course, no exception, going above and beyond to impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike. Every sip holds delicate, refreshing flavours with a sweet aftertaste. You’re bound to enjoy its excellent character and charm.

It’s worth noting, too, that this beverage contains a small amount of caffeine. Expect around 15 milligrams of the stimulant per 8-oz cup.

According to research, it also offers some health benefits! But perhaps best of all, we pack Kenya Silvertip Lesla Estate, like almost all of our products, fresh to order. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency.

About The Lesla Tea Estate

This Estate has produced Tea for over 60 years, with its remarkable reputation preceding itself. It lies in the Kericho district, east of the rift valley at altitudes of over 5,500 feet.

This high elevation, combined with the fertile soil and excellent climatic conditions, contributes significantly to the quality of the Tea. Indeed, our very own Kenya Silvertip Lesla Estate is one of the finest examples.

About Silvertip Tea

If White Tea worked on a strict grading system, Silvertip (also known as “Ying Zhen” and “Silver Needle”) would make it to the top. Workers craft these remarkable Loose Leaf varieties from tender spring buds just before they unfurl into new leaves.

By doing this, the quality of Silvertip Tea tends to be unparalleled. The taste, meanwhile, is, put simply, exquisite.

About Kenya Tea

Despite Tea from China dating back some 5,000 years, its Kenyan counterpart only came into existence near the beginning of the last century. It was a Scotsman named Arnold Butler who began making Kenya Tea for commercial purposes in 1918.

Since then, however, its popularity has soared, with the UK importing around 50% of its Tea from Kenya. Why not start your journey with this one?
