Product Description

Introducing a Sikkim Tea.

Sikkim was a former British Protectorate and lies high in the Himalayas between Darjeeling and Nepal. There is only a small tea garden there, Temi, which produces very high quality leaf tea.

The term ‘tippy’ when it comes to tea refers to the quality of the tea. If it is ‘tippy’, the tea is of higher grade and quality. The ‘tips’ of the tea refer to the bud which is picked. The best teas only contain the top two leaves and one bud from the bush, and if a tea is ‘tippy’, this means that it contains more buds which have the most concentrated and freshest flavours.

The leaves are very fragrant being floral and delicate.

We recommend brewing this Sikkim tea for 3 minutes at 95C.

A further 2 infusions are possible.

As with coffee, we source our tea through established relationships with individual farms, cooperatives and trusted partners. Although our business started with coffee, we introduced tea in the 1980s and spent a lot of time developing our selection and creating our very own blends.

Sustainability is an equally important factor in the tea growing process, both to our business and the wider tea industry. The most important part of the entire tea process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with tea estates which care for the local environment, work hard to combat climate change and support the workers and their families.
