The Indian province of Meghalaya lies between Darjeeling and Assam. They Lakyrsiew estate lies on the southern bank of the Umiam lake, set in rolling hills between 1,000 and 1,375 metres above sea level. The owners first began planting in 2002, using trees from both Darjeeling and Chinese plants discovered growing locally.
Lakyrsiew means ‘the awakening’. This amazing black tea shares some characteristics with Darjeeling, being prepared in a similar fashion and using plants of the same variety. The care and attention taken during manufacture is of the highest order and organic cultivation ensures a rich and diverse soil quality.
The leaves are large and twisted, slowly unwinding during infusion to release the unique complex flavour.
