    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Established in 1969, certified Organic and a laurelled tea estate, Temi Tea garden is the only tea plantation in Sikkim and is known to be the finest in producing specialty teas. Picked at 5000 ft. in the foothills of the Himalayas, we have procured this rare Muscatel straight from its beautiful terroir. This fine Indian single estate tea is medium-bodied, beaming with fruity aromas. Mirabelle plums and nectarines envelop the palate right at the start. Notes of cedar and stone fruits encircle around the edges, with exquisite notes of pink pralines arriving in the aftertaste. A sublime experience of Indian Summer harvest 2021!

    taste

    A medium-bodied, brisk cup which feels ample in the mouth and beams with radiant fruity characters right from the start. Delectable notes of Mirabelle plum and nectarines envelop the palate right at the start and hums along, rendering a distinct texture to the liquor. An underlying muskiness flows throughout, complemented by subtle undertones of cedar and luscious stone-fruity accents which shore up around the edges and towards the finish. Taking the experience a notch higher is exquisite notes of pink pralines in the aftertaste.
