Longjing

BRIGHT & EARLY TEAS
Start your day in an invigorating way with:

ASSAM TOP CTC (ENGLISH BREAKFAST TEA)
Wake up to a distinctive full-bodied breakfast tea. This rich brown tea leaf from the Jamguri Tea Estate has the malty sweetness of summer in its aroma that bears the classic satisfying taste of Assam and gains flavour with a dash of milk.

LONGJING (CHINA’S BREAKFAST TEA)
Dragon Well Qing Ming or Longjing from the mountain lakes of Hangzhou in the Zhejiang province,, is the exquisite source for this famous tea. These pan-fired leaves yield a pale yellow liqueur and a slightly sweet cherry blossom aroma.

NILGIRI OP (KERALA MALABARI CHAI)
An elegant full-leaf tea culled at a high elevation. Enjoy it first thing in the morning, neat or as a blend with our top quality Assam CTC.

Tea Tip: Garnish the teas with fresh herbs like ginger, mint leaves, basil or lemon grass and sweeten with honey or natural vanilla.

Ginghseing Oolong

MID-MORNING BOOST
Give yourself enough energy to go on till lunch:

GINGSHENG OOLONG (ENERGY TEA)
This dark- roasted Oolong tea comes from the Anxi region in the Fijian Province of China, the birthplace of Oolong. This is a classic blend of toasty Oolong and an inviting roasty sweetness of gingsheng, the mother of energy tonics that lingers enticingly on the tongue.

MOONDAKOTEE (DARJEELING GREEN TEA)
One of the treasures of the second flush or harvest in Darjeeling is denoted as ‘Muscatel’. This full-bodied tea from Moondakotee estate has a pronounced beautiful fragrance and taste suggestive of ripe stone-fruit and a long finish with pleasant astringency.

MOONDAKOTEE (DARJEELING BLACK TEA)
This is the ultimate mid-morning tea for many enthusiasts. From a late spring first flush, India’s ‘Champagne of teas’ yields a bold orange liqueur and a flavour bouquet of straw, wood, berries and honeysuckle.

Rose Buds

LUNCHEON TREAT
These light, refreshing teas are a welcome break:

ROSE PETALS (BLACK FLAVOURED TEA)
This black tea is bedecked with colourful flecks of dried rose petals. You’ll discover a subtle floral aroma. A graceful addition to our carefully balanced black tea blends, romantic and exquisite.

LYCHEE (FRUITY BLACK TEA)
Lychee lends its sweet fragrance to a top-tier premium black tea. The tantalising result is a perfect blend, flavoured with lychee fruit, giving it a natural sweet aftertaste.

JASMINE BLOSSOM (GREEN FLOWER TEA)
The heady aroma of Jasmine blossoms mingles with a fairly strong Chinese green tea. You will find this an amiable companion to a wide range of entrees and light desserts.

Tea Tip: Dip our home-style sage or lemon-thyme bread in this lightly flavoured tea for a meal on the go.

Thyme Tisane

MID-AFTERNOON LIFT
Teas to make you feel like the day has just begun:

THYME TISANE
An infusion sourced from the middle-east, fresh thyme treated to perfection, a brew that aids digestion.

LAOSHAN (GREEN MOUNTAIN TEA)

Ambootia Darjeeling

EVENING MEALS
Teas that perfectly accompany meat, fish, casseroles, salad or our desi khana:

LAOSHAN BILOCHEN (JASMINE TEA)
A superior green tea that produces a lingering Jasmine aroma and sweet aftertaste. The decoratively hand pressed leaves open up when brewed, a treat for your eyes.

OOLONG SHANGHAI STYLE (SEMI-OXIDIZED TEA)
Many regard Oolong as the ultimate accompaniment to meals. Vibrant with its oven-fried toasty aroma, hearty and ripe and almost dimensional, the medium-fired leaves exude a light toasty sweetness.

ORGANIC HANDROLLED (DARJEELING)
Straight from the vintage gardens of Ambootia tea estate, an attractive mix that yields an infusion with an effervescent character. Dried multi-hued leaves exude an aroma reminiscent of baked apples, honey and herbs. The liqueur is classic Darjeeling-aromatic, mouth-watering and well balanced with overtones of stone-fruit and berries.
For convenience these beauties are in muslin pyramid bags.
