Description

Ceylon White Tea Oodoowerre Silver Needle: Budset white

Oodoowerre is a beautiful budset Ceylon white tea from the Uva district of Sri Lanka situated at an altitude of nearly 4000 ft. This is a rare tea, painstakingly picked from only the right tea bushes in the Oodoowerre garden. These pale green-grey tips are magnificently large at over one inch long with a captivating blackcurrant aroma to the dry leaf which is just dried on blankets in the sun.

In the cup the liquor is light to medium bodied and straw in colour with somewhat more body than China’s Baihao Yinzhen. It is smooth, beautifully mild, buttery and slightly nutty on the pallet with a long finish. Infuse three grams per cup for four minutes. A fabulous late evening luxury.

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

This Ceylon white tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

Delivery options

For delivery our standard shipping is second class post unless you choose an alternative option such as first class post or courier. Free UK shipping is available for orders over £30 and free first class post can be chosen for orders over £50.

Storing your tea

Store your tea with care by ensuring it is stored air-tight, away from heat, light, moisture and strong aromas. Our standard best-before period is one year from packing and all teas are packed to order.

    Service: As usual, the tea arrived quickly, in a lovely pizza-style box, inside which are the wonderful 3-layer tea bags (paper, aluminium foil & mylar). BTW I HATE it when the website questions my spelling of aluminium. This is the bloody UK, twerps!
    But to continue.
    The Ti Kuan Yin (Tie Guan Yin, fooh!) is superb, a hearty greenish oolong. The Darj. is a repeat purchase, well-known on my shelf. The Keemun I haven’t tasted for decades, & am looking forward to renewing my acquaintance. And the Oodoowerre… I am keenly anticipating this.
    I shall report on the Greys webite in due course.
