Preparation

Gaiwan / Artisan Press / Yixing or Glass Tea Pot

Warm and rinse your vessel and cups with boiled water. Place two teaspoons or 3g of tea into your vessel; a simple rule of thumb is that the leaves should generously cover the bottom. Add spring or filtered water at 75°- 80° or 2 minutes off the boil. Infuse for 35 seconds and pour into your cup(s). Remember to re-infuse 3-4 times and enjoy the evolution of taste as the leaves release their nutrients.

 

Classic

This tea can be made in a classic teapot, following the tradition of 1tsp per person and 1 for the pot. Add 85˚ spring or filtered water a minute off the boil and infuse for 3 minutes. It is delicious on its own or add our organic rose buds. 

 

Story

This vibrant Himalayan tea hails from the Sandakphu Estate, which rests at the foothills of Sandakphu Peak, the highest in Illam, Nepal. This unique bio-diversified region produces distinctive teas because wild mountain herbs and fragrant flowers surround the tea fields.  The tea fields are glacier fed and rest at 2000m enhancing the rarity of character and purity of the tea. The estate is a co-operative, which is owned and operated by its farmers including many female supervisors. The estate was established in early the early 1990s.
