61225 - Blood Orange Rooibos

Also known as Red Bush, it is produced in South Africa. Rooibos is known to have excellent antioxidant properties and is naturally caffeine free. The liquor is bright and rich with the flavouring of blood orange.

Pale with a distinctive brightness giving a complex sweet and floral character to the flavour with a slight nutty undertone.

Brew with freshly drawn boiled water that has cooled for 2 minutes, for 3-5 minutes.

A80867 -  Assam Smoked Oolong

During the Opium wars (around 1839) which stopped Britain and China trading in tea, the British became worried about the supply of their beloved beverage and searched for new regions to grow it themselves. One region that took well to the plant was Assam in northeast India. It was later discovered that a variant of Camellia sinensis (tea), was growing wild in Assam already and today both variants are manufactured side by side and carefully cross pollinated to get the very best leaf for strength, flavour and character.
This is a very special tea painstakingly manufactured by hand in to a fine Oolong during the 2nd Flush period. The leaf is large and twisted showing both black and gold in colour. The manufacture of this tea involves delicate firing over an open fire to allow a light smokey character to absorb in to the leaf. The liquor is bright and possesses a very delicate smokey flavour. A very rare tea indeed!!

Brew with freshly drawn boiled water that has cooled for 2 minutes, for 3-5 minutes.


110029 - Darjeeling 1st Flush Goomtee DJ02 2020
A light green leaf with silver tip, this cup produces a bright orange/gold liquor, and presents a juicy and slightly vegetal flavour.

Use freshly drawn boiled water that has cooled for 2 minutes and brew for 3-5 minutes, depending on personal taste.
