INFORMATION: Teas on the Estate benefited from the surrounding biodiversity, in particular, Cypress trees that grew in abundance, wild mint and eucalyptus, the scent of which drifted through the air, lending their influence on the character of the finished teas. Teas from the Estate are considered the Champagne of the tea world. Cupping the output typically offers an incredibly exquisite flavor with brisk notes, subtle astringency and floral layers with notes of eucalyptus, citrus, velvety layers of honey and slight tones of cut grass. The incredible tea offered here, Pedro BOP Natural, offers what many consider to be the truest expression of the intricacy of character offered by the estate. A recent innovation to Pedro, Natural tea is the result of halting the CTC (Cut, Tear and Curl) process mid-way through. The leaf is broken and choppy but infuses with such smoothness you'll wonder why this grade wasn't on offer in the past.
