Since the first leaves were infused 4,700 years ago, Tea continues to be embraced by many cultures in different varieties and forms. Manjushree Plantations artfully blends these storied traditions with the sophisticated needs of the modern consumer. Their mission is to produce teas that delight the palate, enhance the quality of life and elevate the joys of drinking of what many call the elixir of life.
All teas are made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, but different processing methods produce different types of tea. Manjushree Plantations offers a comprehensive range of very fine teas to cater to every discerning taste. Available in bulk as well as retail packages.
White Tea is the most exotic and stylish of all teas. It derives its name from the silver white hair on the unopened buds.
Green Tea is made from mature tea leaves which undergo minimal oxidation before processing. Instead of being fermented, green tea is dried quickly, thus giving it a slightly astringent taste.
Leaves destined to become Oolong tea are “bruised” to release the polyphenols present. They undergo only a slight amount of fermentation before being heated and dried.
Black Tea is prepared from fresh tea leaves that are allowed to ferment completely before drying.
