A fragrant black loose leaf tea from the "Abode of Clouds" – high in the cloudy hills between Assam and Darjeeling. Light and floral as a Darjeeling with the rich caramel and malty notes you get from the best Assam.

Indian Black Cloud Tea

A very enjoyable experience. Definitely one for those who appreciate the more complex flavours……Greatly improves with second and third infusion.

Amber deliciousness

I confess I rarely drink black tea but this was a revelation. My son Will brewed me some when I came in from my gardening (I'm usually too heavy handed with the precious leaves) I was thirsty and this was so refreshing, light and delicious, I had another cup! My new favourite!

While visiting the Isle of Wight recently I was taken to The Rabbit Hole tea shop by my daughter, who knows how important afternoon tea is to me. She had promised that they have proper bone china crockery. It was there I discovered the Indian Cloud black tea. When I asked the owner where she sourced this wonderful tea she jokingly said if she told me she would have to **** me. Fortunately my detective skills paid off and I noticed some tea boxes from the Rare Tea Co. After a quick computer search I found and ordered this unique tea and every afternoon I mix it with a small amount of an organic long leaf Assam tea to give it a little body in colour but all the flavour comes from the Indian Cloud.. As I write this review I wonder am I about to be the cause of yet another unique delicious tea disappearing quickly? Maybe I should order some more before it is too late.

For years I have been searching for the elusive transcendental quality of imagined 1st flush Darjeeling perfection. This is as close as I can find. Boil your water to 80 degrees and half fill the pot. Add a generous pinch of Cloud tea and just let it sit afloat on the water. Enjoy the aroma for as long as you desire. Now fill the pot. Leave in anticipation and watch as the water turns from honey to amber. Finally enjoy. There is no better start to a day.

Indian Cloud Black Tea

Indian Cloud Black Tea is a lovely, refreshing surprise of a loose leaf tea. I love it! Its flavor is so simple, delicious, and undemanding as a hot beverage. It does not compete with the flavor of any food I might be consuming along with my cup of Cloud Tea. That is what I think I like the best about Indian Cloud Black Tea!

Tasting Notes

It is floral and bright with deep, malty notes, and rich, dark chocolate. This harvest has exceptional notes of apricot.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 80 - 90°C (176 - 194°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.  

Cost Per Cup

42p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
