Silver Green

Silver Green, Green tea, harvested the whole season

The Makaibari Silver Green is one of the most sought after green teas coming out of Darjeeling. Developed by Makaibari in the early eighties as the first Green Darjeeling Tea, the Silver Green was only meant for personal consumption. Pressure from fellow tasters, demand from those who sampled the variety, and a general inclination of the consumer market towards healthier beverages all contributed to the addition of this fine variety of tea to our commercial portfolio. Still treated as a handicraft more than a manufactured product, a great deal of close attention goes into making this unique green tea.
