a jewel of a tea

I bought a First Flush Sikkum earlier in the year and followed it up recently with this Very Rare Sikkum. It's such a delicate tea, delicious without milk. I tend to drink tea without milk and I suspect milk might hamper the flavours in this. It looks so bright - a beautiful copper colour with a clear glint through my glass tea cup. In the mouth it's smooth and with soft tannins and a lovely light oak flavour which I found really appealing. It was a good price too.

Exceptionally delicious tea

I like this tea so much that I have ordered a further two packets before I have even finished the first.

The best tea I've ever tasted

I bought this tea as a result of an email from the Rare Tea and am not even waiting until it is all used before buying two more sachets. It is a truly beautiful, delicious tea.

Tasting Notes

A fruity and floral early summer harvest. Notes of gooseberry, physalis and the shattering top of a crème caramel as you burst through it with your spoon.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly. Best enjoyed without milk.


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

Cost Per Cup

21p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.
