Sparkling tea box
Sparkling tea box
Cold-brewed sparkling tea is the perfect way to steep tea this summer. We have selected three of our favourite teas, each with floral or fruity base notes which are beautifully accentuated when steeped in cold, sparkling water.
Sparking tea is the perfect alternative to champagne and is lovely to serve at the beginning of an event or to kick off Christmas morning!
The teas currently in our Sparkling tea box are:
Temi First Flush, organic black tea, India
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.
Jasmine Pearls, green tea, China
Jasmine, fresh cut hay – smooth & balanced
This Imperial Grade Jasmine Pearls green tea is made with 2019 ‘first flush’ leaves (the very first leaves to appear in spring after the winter dormancy) and fresh Jasmine petals. A unique steaming process is used to naturally draw out the petal’s fragrance into the tea leaves. The petals are then discarded and the tea leaves expertly hand-rolled into small pearls, sealing in the floral aroma.
Pareng Summer Silver Tippy Black, India*
Dried apple, malt, honey
At the base of the Himalayas, nestled between two rivers and surrounded by dense forest, lies a new tea garden, planted by Mr Tabem in 2011, in a little area called Pareng, in Arunachal Pradesh, Northern India. Mr Tabem and his family have crafted this beautiful summer harvest (June to July) tea, made up of large, full leaves and an abundance of silver-gold buds. This 2018 summer harvest tea is the perfect choice for your afternoon tea. The steeped tea is ultra-light in body and has an incredible fragrance and flavour of dried apples, alongside notes of malt and honey.
Each tea is 20 grams. The box includes a little note card to introduce the box to the gift recipient, instructions on how to cold-brew the teas in sparkling water, and our tea steeping and tasting guide. And of course, the teas can all be hot-steeped too!
*Please note Pareng Summer Silver Tippy Black tea replaces Wild Purple Moonlight (pictured) due to this selling out. Pareng creates a stunning sparkling tea and is also beautiful hot steeped as are the other teas.
