Around the World Loose Leaf Gift Set
A gift set for the tea connoisseur! Experience a taste of three different countries teas! This collection of high grade teas have been hand selected by us for their fine quality and luxurious flavours. The perfect gift for anyone that loves fine teas!
This set includes:
Jasmine Dragon Pearls – Chinese White Tea 30g
Each pearl is hand-rolled using the finest, young shoots picked in early spring. Once the pearls are dried, they are stored until summer. The jasmine blossoms are picked in the morning, when the small petals are tightly closed and then kept cool until nightfall. They open during the night, releasing their fragrance ready for the scenting process. It takes up to 7 nights for the pearls to absorb the aroma. Each night after 4 hours, the flowers are removed and the pearls dried. Fresh blossoms are used every time. The liquor (infusion) is pale yellow with a sweet jasmine flavour and aroma.
Premium Japanese Green Tea – Organic Kabusecha Kirishima 30g
The word Kabusecha means ‘shaded tea’. The leaves are shaded for 10 – 14 days prior to harvesting. This results in the tea plant producing small, deep green leaves which when infused gives a yellow-green liquor (infusion) with a creamy and umami flavour reminiscent of fresh Edamame soya beans. A very aromatic and refreshing tea one of the best produced in Japan. Suitable for multiple infusions.
Single Estate Darjeeling – Indian Tea 30g
Castleton 1st Flush FTGFOP1 SPL CH
The tea estate Castleton was planted in 1885 by Dr Charles Graham. Castleton is unique for its topography, soil profile and the tea bushes which have been planted here. Because of this, the quality of their teas cannot be replicated by other gardens.
This superb quality early spring picked tea gives a flavoursome golden-yellow liquor with a floral taste and notes of honey. One of the best Darjeeling teas produced.
