Canadian Tea + Clay Gift Set

Regular price $80.00
Description: From the Westholme terroir and studio, this gift set is a true taste and feel of our teafarm. It includes two exquisite handmade items, one from each of the Westholme Tea Company co-founders. A special footed cup, hand-built by Margit Nellemann in her studio beside our Teashop, and from Victor Vesely, a 10g pouch of hand-plucked, hand-made Canadian-grown roasted green tea from the slopes of our property. This gift set is truly a rare and special find.

    1x Medium Handbuilt Yunomi Tea Cup

    By Margit Nellemann

    1x 10g Pouch White Mist - Westholme Grown Tea
    By Victor Vesely

     

    Handbuilt Yunomi Tea Cup: This teacup is made by Margit in her unique take on the Japanese yunomi, which is a cup used for daily informal tea drinking (as opposed to more traditional cups specifically made for tea ceremony). The cup size is perfect to hold in your hands, and excellent for enjoying the warmth of a tea without burning your fingers - the white, oolong and green teas that this cup is typically made to hold are brewed at lower temperatures for optimal aroma and flavour (below 100°C).

    Dishwasher Safe. No Microwave.

    Westholme White Mist Tea: This tea is usually plucked from the tender first flush of our tea bushes in early Spring. Due to the limited harvesting window, this tea is quite rare.

    Description: Each morning, heavy clouds envelope the mountain peaks surrounding Westholme, quenching the slopes and trickling down to our valley and our tea plants. These mists of rain, and the gentle light that glows through the overcast sky, is what White Mist is named for - these are the ideal growing conditions for the young, tender leaves and buds of our exquisite white tea.

    After being harvested by hand and gently laid out to air dry, the tea begins its gentle oxidation. As there is little processing involved with white tea types, the structure of the leaves and bud are maintained - as you steep this tea, watch them unfurl in the hot water.

    Tasting Notes: The flavour is graceful and rich; the deep complexity of honey with hints of citrus and fresh leaves. The liqueur, though light, truly captures the deep essence of our Westholme terroir.

    Brewing Instructions: Use 80ºC - 90ºC water (below boil) and pour over the loose leaves. 2.5 g per cup of water. Steep for 3-5 minutes. We invite you to enjoy several steeps.


     

    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.
