The teas in our Breakfast in Bed box are:
Lumbini Pekoe, black tea, Sri Lanka
Flavour: malt, pepper, cedar ~ brisk & full-bodied
In the highest valley in Southern Sri Lanka, surrounded by 25,000 hectares of virgin rainforest, lies the Lumbini Tea Valley. Nestled in its pristine environment, Lumbini’s focus on sustainable tea practices as well as its artisan craftmanship means some of the best teas in Sri Lanka come from this tea garden. Grown 400m above sea level, this is Lumbini’s ‘pekoe’ grade of black tea. Watch the rolled leaves unfurl as they steep and smell their sweet, malty and nutty fragrance. The leaves infuse into a full bodied, well-structured, tannic tea with notes of malt, pepper spice and cedar.
Old Bush Lapsang Souchong, black tea, China
Flavour: tree bark, wild berries, camphor ~ light-bodied & captivating
Harvested on 15 May 2023, these leaves come from 100-year-old, tall trees that are covered with green moss from root to branch. The trees grow wild outside of Gua Duan village in the Wuyishan National Nature Reserve, Fujian, China. They produce a low leaf yield, making this a precious tea. The plump, wiry leaves release a floral and woody scent. The liquor has a soft, creamy mouthfeel and earthy notes of tree bark, wild berries and camphor – a captivating flavour that reflects the wild nature of the trees. This tea comes from Wuyi Origin tea company, led by Cindy Chen and her husband, Zhou Shiwu, who value quality tea craftsmanship and love sharing the experience of the special teas the region produces.
Himalayan Moon Drops, organic oolong tea, Nepal
Flavour: floral, malty, creamy & sweet
Harvested in June 2023, Himalayan Moon Drops is a sensory feast. It is crafted using hand-harvested leaves from Japanese and Taiwanese tea plant cultivars that are grown at an elevation of 1850m. The steeped infusion is smooth and creamy with notes of flowers, sweet malt, raw sugar and sweetened whipped cream. Jun Chiyabari, meaning ‘Moonlit tea garden’, is a family run, high mountain tea estate led by brothers Bachan and Lochan Gyawali. The tea plants are set in small plots scattered between forests, bamboo groves, boulders and streams, at an altitude of 1650m to 2100m in Dhankuta, east Nepal. The terroir, the brothers’ commitment to organic production and careful processing creates rare, high quality, light and aromatic full-leaf teas. Organic certification by IMO.
Thyolo Misty Oolong, oolong tea, Malawi
Flavour: bright and fresh with fruit, spice and floral notes
After being harvested by hand, these leaves are gently turned and bruised to initiate oxidation while they wither in the sun. They are then rolled and dried. The infusion is clean and bright with fascinating notes of orange, papaya, red peppercorn followed by a floral finish. This is a rare tea from Satemwa, a small family-run tea estate nestled in the Shire Highlands in Thyolo, southern Malawi, Africa. Founded in 1923, Satemwa is certified by Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance and has a strong focus on sustainability and ethical tea production. June 2021 harvest.
Sun Moon Lake, black tea, Taiwan
Flavour: bourbon, malt, raisin ~ clean & crisp
Harvested on 7 July 2023 from a garden that sits at an elevation of 900m in Yuchi Township, Nantou Country, Taiwan, these leaves come from the #8 Assamica cultivar of tea plant, originally from Jaipur, India. Fully oxidized and twisted, the leaves infuse into a decadent, clean and crisp infusion. Medium-bodied with notes of bourbon, raisin and malt. The Wang Family has been involved in Taiwanese tea for many generations. The company and farms are now run by brother and sister duo Joshua and Ivy Wang, who have a passion for sustainable and environmentally friendly practices and sharing the best tea that Taiwan has to offer.
Each tea is 20 grams and the leaves can be steeped at least twice. If you would like to purchase the teas only (not the infuser glass and spoon - although we highly recommend these!), select 'small box - teas only' in 'Size' above.
