I was very excited to find this tea. Temi being one of the first tea estates in Sikkim, was started by an estate from Darjeeling. While being on the border between the two provinces, Temi offers hope to bring prestige to this region.
To be completely honest I was a little disappointed in the tea. It tasted flat, and maybe a little bit stale. One can detect a slight hint of muscatel, which isn’t surprising considering its location in the Himalaya mountains, but it means that either Temi hasn’t quite got their manufacture under control or Palais des Thes needs to move their stock quicker.
