Temi Tea Garden
Ginger & Lemongrass
Sikkim & Sri Lanka
We have carefully crafted a blend of uniquely complex and full-bodied lemongrasses harvested from the highlands of Sri Lanka with pure rich ginger gathered from the foothills of the Himalayas around the Temi Tea Garden in Sikkim.
Sri Lankan Lemongrass
The lemongrass is made using the tender leaf rather than the woody base. It is grown in a remote mountain tea garden above the Ravana Falls combined with smallholder organic farms across Sri Lanka.
High in the Indian Himalayas, between Nepal and Bhutan, lies the secret region of Sikkim. The Lepcha people cultivate and craft a tea that is truly outstanding.
Between seasons, they prepare this extraordinary ginger, harvesting and drying it in the withering beds, where the tea is laid out to lose moisture and become supple before crafting. The high altitude combined with organic and traditional practices in cultivation and handling result in a ginger with a deeply intense and rounded character that is the very best we have found after an extensive search across the globe.
