From Rutland Tea Co

SIKKIM S.F.T.G.F.O.P.1 2nd flush “TEMI

supplied in re-sealable “stay fresh” stand-up pouches

Temi tea garden is the only existing in the Sikkim state, situated east of Darjeeling, producing one of the best quality tea with beautiful leaves and plenty of golden tips.

Has flowery aroma and honey coloured liquor with a very pleasant strong taste. Very rich in tannins.

This is a special occasion tea and best without or a splash of milk. Also suitable as a breakfast tea and with a light meal at tea time.

Brewing method: brew 1 teaspoon per cup, water temperature 100C/203F. Infuse for 2-4 min

As soon as I opened the foil packaging i was hit by the chocolately orange aroma of this tea. These flavours are present once the tea has been steeped also. I have tried it both with and without milk (personally, I prefer it without on reflection). It’s not overly astringent to be drunk black. With or without milk, the first taste is of floral oranges with a pleasant warm claylike afteraste. Highly recommended!

*Edit: I’ve just made myself a cup of this some two days after the above review. Today I steeped in cup, with the lid from my gaiwan on top (it fits one of my cups perfectly!) with leaves in a ball infuser. As opposed to the above review which was from a teapot. Anyways, I wanted to remark on the flavour, which above i described as chocolately orange. No – it’s pineapple today. Warming, sweet pineapple – i’m astonished I didn’t recognise it last time. Another beautiful cuppa… I urge you to buy some of this tea!
