Origin: Blended at Westholme
Ingredients: Premium Black Pekoe Teas from Yunnan and Anhui
How does one condense fifteen years of tea – tea blending, tea adventures, tea stories, tea growing and tea reverence into one blend? It sure has made for a little head scratching and then, after some reflections, the simple answer was to look to the roots.
No. 15 was created with history in mind, both tea origin, tea history and also the very recent history of Westholme.
No. 15 takes us back to China as a reminder of how Westholme came to be, rooted in tea history and tradition.
We have created a blend of some of our very favourite Chinese black teas from Yunnan province and from Anhui province resulting in a delightful combination of flavour and fragrance.
A blend of exquisite whole leaf teas from Yunnan and Qimen. The tea steeps to a beautiful rich amber with notes of slightly toasted chestnuts, full of flavour and a delicate hint of astringency. The cup is bright, warm with a subtle reminder of baked peaches. The fragrance lingers pleasantly in the empty cup and asks for yet another steep.
Brewing Instructions: 2-3g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-4 minutes.
