Harney & Sons Sankar Silver Tip Green Tea - Review
Rare Assam Green Tea
that Harney & Sons consistently package great
teas. You see them in hotels and restaurants but can
also purchase them directly via their catalogue. We
particularly liked the Sankar Silver Tip in their
green tea selection. Not just for the taste — when
properly brewed at it is often not done — but
for how it made us feel. It is a rare tea sourced
by Michael Harney in Assam. Rare because most Assams
are black teas and this selection came from India’s
best producer. In the production process, the big
buds are steamed and sundried to produce silver buds.
The flavor is subtle and complex. The brewed tea is
flavorful and “sweeter” than a Japanese
green tea with a truly unique and pleasant taste.
