The first pick after the snow melts in the Himalayas, and the bushes start to produce their first new leaves. This tea is bright, clean, delicate with a highly perfumed nose.

Exquisite flavor

I gravitate to the Sikkim on particularly stressful work days - it is the perfect tea to take a moment to reset. Try both recommended green-style and black-style infusions for a different, delightful tasting experience.

A delightful uplifting tea

I truly loved the Sikkim, refreshingly light & floral yet with a surprising richness, a delightful uplifting tea.

Tasting Notes

Crafted as a black tea it is lighter, more ethereal than later harvests - almost like a silky green tea but with heady florals, deep richness and all the verdant sweetness of spring. It infuses to a pale golden cup.

Quantity

Use 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).

Temperature

For a green style infusion use 167°F (75°C) water.

For a black style infusion use water at 185°F (85°C).

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

57¢ per cup based on 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.
