Style: Black

Origin: Blended at Westholme

Ingredients: Assam, Ceylon, Darjeeling, Lavender, Oil of Bergamot

Description: Persia is one of Westholme’s very first blended teas. Drawing inspiration from West Asian tea culture, where tea is often served with morning and afternoon meals, and to guests and neighbours throughout the day, we created a flavourful and refreshing tea for any time of day.

Tasting Notes: A gentle, floral citrus scent on the nose which builds in sweetness as it sits in the cup. The palate has a gentle muscatel on the tip of the tongue, with a pleasant astringency building on the mid-tongue, but curbing into softness with notes of lavender and bergamot. The cup is pleasantly complex, crisp, and refreshing.

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

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.
