This beautiful Himalayan harvest has been selected uniquely to be infused as an iced tea. 

A highly floral and fragrant black tea from the LaKyrsiew Tea Garden, in the high forested region of Meghalaya, India.  From the foothills of the Himalayas in an area known in the local dialect as “the abode of clouds” this tiny garden produces some of the most rare and unique tea in the world.
 
The finer cut of the leaf, in comparison to our Indian Cloud Black Tea , allows for a rather sublime cold infusion.

Tasting Notes

Light floral notes are balanced by deep chocolate and bright, soft citrus with a rich malty sweetness.  This iced tea is perfect on its own without the need for any additives or sweeteners.

It makes a beautiful accompaniment with food - where you might have served a New Zealand Riesling or a crisp Sancerre.

Quantity

Use 6g of tea per 1 litre of cold water.

Temperature

For the optimum cold infusion use water around 4°C/40°F and keep in the fridge.

Time

Infuse for at least 8 hours in the fridge (or overnight – you don’t have to worry about over infusing).

Infusions

This iced tea blend is only suitable for one infusion.

For the most sublime flavour, we recommend infusing in cold water overnight – which creates the most nuanced and elegant flavour by slow extraction and is completely flavour stable in the fridge for 3-4 days. The cut is fine to increase the surface area – ideal for this long, cold method.

For an iced tea to sip without anything added, like a chilled glass of wine, please use 12.5g per 1 litre of cold filtered water.

If you are looking for something stronger and adding a lot of ice (which dilutes the tea) or perhaps you are using it as a lengthener for a cocktail (on non-alcoholic drink) then please increase it to 15g or 20g per litre. As with all our tea do please experiment a little to get it exactly the way you like it.

It can also be infused hot and left to chill for a more tannic bite. (In this instance it should be used within one day).
