Simply delicious

An elegant and subtly refreshing tea I love to drink in the afternoon. Alone, without any food. But it can work well with some buttery biscuit, the crisp flavour of this beautiful tea contrast with the texture of the « breton  » sablé. I love the big leaves unfolding in the pot and to smell its perfume. A « simple » and beautiful tea.

Infuse not brew

The nicest, fruitiest, most aromatic Darjeeling analogue I have ever tested. This, together with Indian Cloud Tea and Sikkim Second Flush Muscatel, are the holy trinity of teas for me and I always make sure I have a couple of these knocking around in my cupboard. They blow all the competition out of the water, even local loose leaf independent shops, Taylors of Harrogate and Newby. Cannot get through the day without them.

NEPAL

The Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden

High in the Nepali Himalayas lies the tiny but extraordinarily beautiful Jun Chiyabari Tea Garden. At 1835 meters above sea level, the tea grows slowly but with intense flavours. This very special terroir produces uniquely rich, chocolate flavours.

Morris Orchard

The garden is run by Morris Orchard, a third generation Nepali tea planter whose grandfather came from Britain to plant tea. This lovely man has a great respect for the land, the tea, and the small team he works with - it is an honour to be part of that.
