Lakyrsiew Tea Garden
Deep in the forgotten forest region of Meghalaya, India, lies the tiny Lakyrsiew tea garden.
From high in the cloudy hills they produce some of the most rare and unique tea in the world.
ABODE OF CLOUDS
The best of both worlds
In the local dialect Meghalaya is called "the Abode of Clouds" so we call this Cloud Tea. It lies between Assam and Darjeeling and this tea really has the best of both. Light and floral as a Darjeeling with the rich caramel and malty notes you get from the best Assam.
This tiny garden produces tea in very small amounts because their concern is always quality over volume.
Delicate and graceful
The tea is meticulously crafted to keep the beautiful leaves whole. This tender crafting allows the leaves to retain a delicacy and softness that is very rare in black teas.
