A special nilgiri tea made from only the core buds, with a refreshing scent and a sweet taste that feels like the spring breeze.
The slender, elongated olive-green tea leaves are all freshly sprouted core buds. Only the young shoots of a special variety are carefully hand-picked for 10 days to make this beautiful tea, which weighs only 10kg per lot. When you take a sip, you can feel the fresh, light texture and honeydew flavor, as if the spring breeze that has passed through the forest in the season of sprouts has scented the refreshing spring water. Specialty tea from the representative tea garden of Nilgiri.
The elongated leaves of olive green are covered with many downy hairs.
Yellow light blue (suishoku) that you can see a refreshing taste.

In the tasting room of Chamuraji tea garden. Various kinds of specialty teas are lined up. The brand on the far left is the white tea that we are introducing this time.
Chamuraji tea garden that we buy every year at our store. And although it's not every year, I've been gradually introducing the specialty teas of Chamuraji Tea Garden. Following the handmade tea in 2018 and the golden chip in 2021, we bought white tea in 2022. The olive green leaves covered with downy hair are all core buds. It takes 10 days to carefully and patiently pick and make tea. After a lot of daunting work, it arrived at our hands. Chamuraji Tea Garden White Tea, which I will introduce this time, is classified as black tea in terms of the manufacturing process, not "white tea" as a classification of Chinese tea, even though it is white tea. It doesn't have the deep taste of black tea's oxidative fermentation at all, and it has a gentle taste with a refreshing scent that feels bluish and a faint sweetness of tea. By all means, make tea in a glass teapot and enjoy a relaxing and quiet tea time while watching the core buds slowly floating and sinking in the hot water.
chamuraji tea plantation
Chamuraji tea plantation factory.
It is also known as one of the highest tea gardens in the world.
In 1922, Chamuraji tea garden started its history. Located at an altitude of over 2,000 meters, this tea garden continues to produce high-quality, sweet, flowery, fragrant nilgiri tea that is unique to high-grown tea. There is Korakunda tea garden as a sister tea garden. Since both of them produce tea leaves of reliable quality, they are known as one of the representative tea gardens of Nilgiri in Japan. It is also known as one of the highest tea gardens in the world. India's tea gardens were among the first to introduce a fair trade system. We are focusing on the welfare of the staff working at the tea plantation and their families, and we are also focusing on enhancing the school education for the children of the tea plantation staff, including higher education.
Nilgiri, also known as the Blue Mountain
Blue-purple Kurinji flowers cover the entire mountain.
Nilgiri means "blue mountain" in the local language. The reason for this is said to be that once every 12 years, the Kurinji flowers bloom all at once here, making the mountains look blue. It seems that the last time it bloomed all at once in 2006, so it is said that the next flowering will be seen in 2018.
