Free Gift - Sikkim Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe Tea

£0.00 Regular price
Unit price

This Sikkim Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe is a rare Indian tea of the highest quality. 

Sikkim 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, creating a delicate and floral cup.
