For the optimum infusion use 100°C (212°F) water.

History

HARVEST

In late spring the plant produces an abundance of yellow flowers that Ferran harvests by hand in July. He delicately cuts the stalks then ties the blossoms into groups, where they are hung and left to dry in his farmhouse.

Pollinators

Ferran Rojo Sol

Ferran is a humble man. He happily spends his days quietly growing organic fruits, vegetables, and flowers, supplying his bounty to the local community through his small farm shop.

People began coming from far and wide for his outstanding produce.

Word spread further afield, and it wasn’t long before the chefs at Mugaritz (currently no.7 on Worlds 50 best restaurants) went to visit- and they introduced us.

At Rare Tea we are constantly searching for new terroirs, new flavours and new adventures. What Ferran was doing ticked all these boxes, and Henrietta went to visit to ask if we could collaborate – lucky for us, Ferran said yes.


Like many of the farmers we are fortunate to partner with, Ferran quickly became a friend. Back in 2018 he was in London and joined us for our Rare Tea Christmas Party!
