This tea is produced on land in Sikkim, the only completely Organic state in India. It lays along the southern border of the Himalayas.
The Temi Tea Estate is the only tea garden here, making it a jewel in the region. This tea garden was originally developed as a Tibetan refuge, giving them employment in the tea fields. It grew to what it currently is today, a beautiful sprawling garden that spans 1400 to 2000 feet of elevation, making the garden diverse. Every season is unique, and the tea produced here benefits from these seasonal changes.
This tea presents a beautiful sandalwood aroma and flavor, with hints of nutmeg. The flavor is smooth and savory, with a lasting finish. It tastes very fresh, and bright. Steep this one multiple times, keeping an eye on the color of your steep. We fell in love with it at first sip!
