This is our Champagne. A very regal brew.
Produced from fragrant First Flush Darjeeling, picked by hand as the first tips of tea emerge in spring. The Indian city of Darjeeling itself is known as Queen of the Hills and its First Flush is known as the Champagne of Teas.
The tea is richly fragrant and creates a brew that is fresh and floral. We add nothing, but the tea alone develops notes of rhubarb, white peach and a touch of blackcurrant. The fruit and spice flavours round out the acids to make it soft and delicate.
Pair anywhere you might use a sparkling or full bodied white wine such as a chardonnay: white fish, white meat, cream sauces. Anything with delicate umami notes. Perfect with charcuterie as the acidity cuts through the fat.
