We blend our organic white tea leaves with pineapple bits and coconut for a mouth-watering, succulent treat.
This tea is totally and completely indulgent. Guilt-free, of course. We love white tea. We especially love the Oothu Estate white tea.
This tea comes from the renowned Oothu Estate in the Singampatti rainforest in southern India. Known for its exquisite teas, this spring plucked white tea is simply delightful, luscious, and full bodied.

The Oothu tea estate is owned by the Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation, India’s oldest publicly quoted company. Due to the recent demand for organic products in the past few decades, the company decided to transform at least one of their estates into an entirely organic agricultural method, and thus, in the 1970s, Oothu became the first tea estate in India to adapt biodynamic principles.
Just 40 miles away from the southern tip of India, situated at the southern end of the Western Ghat, the Oothu tea estate sits in isolation from the rest of the country. The estate covers the rolling hills of Tirunelveli in the Nilgiris district and is surrounded by the tropical evergreen forests of the Kalakkad and Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve, which hosts a rich diversity of unique wildlife. The rich jungle corridors have been preserved to maintain the rare natural ecosystem, most suitable for the organic tea production.
Oothu was among the first in India to become organic certified in 1992, and Fair Trade certified in 1995. Currently, Oothu tea estate is the largest organic producer of tea in the world.
