Style: Black

Origin: Blended in Westholme using teas sourced from China and India.

Ingredients: Keemun, Nilgiri, Yunnan

Description: We do sometimes have a tendency to close our eyes and set forth down one of the many loopy rabbit holes here on our tea farm. With this in mind, we decided to create a blend to honour the fun and festivities of the most extravagant imaginary tea party. Playing on the theme of royal(tea), we used only exclusive and stately black teas from China and India, making this cup fit for the Queen of Hearts. A perfect morning, afternoon and evening tea.

Tasting Notes: An extremely smooth, warm and aromatic black tea with subtle notes of honey and sweet grass. The cup is velvety on the tongue.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup; 100ºC water; steep 3-5 minutes

Certified Organic

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
