Developed by innovative tea makers in the highlands west of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, Crested Crane is an exquisite Pai Mu Tan style white tea. The tea is produced by plucking leaves on rain-free days, taking care to avoid any purple buds, partially opened leaves, insect damaged leaves, wind damaged leaves or stems that are either too long or too short. Once plucked, the leaves are gently withered until they are slightly green in color – and that’s that. A fabulous tea from the Tuscany of Tea…Kenya.
