Why We Love It: Made in a small village, in the famous Ilam region, by a farmer who goes by the nickname, Buddha, these Golden Tips are an extremely labor intensive tea. It’s comprised mostly of buds, which are the most difficult to hand-pick. It takes great care and precision to produce a tea of this kind and Buddha & his team are the most skilled craftsmen we’ve seen in the entire region.
