Tea Farm

The certified organic Seeyok Estate was established in 1869 and is located in the Mirik Valley at the foot of the Himalayas. This prestigious tea garden sits at 1,000-1,800m above sea level, an elevation higher than most tea gardens in the region. At the border between India and Nepal, the tea garden lies in the shadow of the Kanchenjunga Mountain with a view of the Rongbong Valley. The northeast-facing slopes benefit from high rainfall and a cool microclimate that is responsible for the characteristically robust flavour of the tea. The tea is processed according to strictly observed quality standards.

Character

Flavour

A wonderfully balanced and refreshing version of the classic Earl Grey. Exquisite orange aroma perfectly complements the floral notes of the first flush Darjeeling. The citrus fragrance of orange and bergamot oils accompany a full-bodied flavour and soft texture that delights the senses. The tea is overall characterised by a sweet and fruity taste.

Black Tea

Black tea is the most oxidised form of tea. In contrast to green tea, the oxidation of the leaves after harvest and withering is not stopped with heat, but rather further facilitated by intensive rolling of the leaves, which breaks open cell walls and exposes the enzymes responsible for oxidation. Over the course of this process the leaves change from green to black and a full-bodied and broad aroma develops. The cup is often orange or red, which is where the Chinese name for this tea (hong cha, meaning "red tea") comes from.

Preparation

Preparation

2-3g per 100-300ml 75°C water. Steep for 2-3 minutes.

Packaging

High quality, airtight, resealable standing zipper pouch with 9 protective layers to preserve flavour and protect against oxidation and contamination.

Recommended Teapot

For an especially aromatic and traditional-tasting Earl Grey, we recommend an elegant glass teapot from Hario or, alternatively, a classic porcelain teapot.

Recommended Tea Caddy

Ideally store in a quality tea caddy made from cherry tree bark (wooden, kabazaiku chazutsu) or an airtight, double-coated metal tin.
