Temi First Flush
Organic black tea, India

20 grams

Muscatel, dried apricot, rose, sweet spice
Temi First Flush is a unique, high-grade black tea from Temi Tea Estate, an organic tea farm situated in a tranquil, mountainous area in the North Eastern reaches of India, nestled between Nepal and Bhutan. The first leaf shoots that appear after the winter dormancy are carefully plucked to create this 'first flush' tea (2018 harvest). The dry leaves have a surprising hint of green apple and they infuse into a highly aromatic tea with notes of dried apricot, rose, muscatel with malty and sweet spice undertones. This tea works well either hot or cold-brewed in sparkling water (pictured). 

Preparation:
 Hot steep for 3 minutes at 95° (two infusions). Cold sparkling: add 4 grams of dry leaves to a 330ml bottle of sparkling water. Chill in the fridge for two hours then strain and serve. 

Food pairing: The sparkling cold-brew version of this tea works well with both sweet and savoury cold dishes such as melon wrapped in prosciutto and a prawn cocktail. Hot-steeped, this tea pairs perfectly with a dried fruit and spice slice.
