Organic Silver Tips white tea of extraordinary quality from northern India! LaKyrsiew, meaning awakening in the local Khasi language, is a boutique tea garden in Meghalaya, Northern India between Assam and Darjeeling on the southern bank of Umiam Lake at 1,000-1,300 metres altitude. Its story began 200 years ago when the East India Company first scouted this region as ideal for tea planting. The misty, forest-covered Khasi Hills were found to have the perfect conditions for growing tea, yet tribal laws forbade outsiders from working their land and, consequently, the project was abandoned.
