    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 fine summer chinary straight from its beautiful terroir. This fine Indian single estate tea is medium-bodied, beaming with radiant fruity characters. The taste of nectarines and apricot envelops the palate with notes of cedar around the edges. The aftertaste of Mirabelle plums creates a sublime experience of the Indian Summer harvest 2022!

    taste

    A medium-bodied, pleasantly supple cup which beans with radiant-fruity characters right from the start. Luscious tones of nectarines interlaced with notes of apricot coat the palate and hum along throughout; rendering an unique texture to the liquor. Light musky accents shore up around the edges complemented by exquisite tones of cedar, adding greater depth and mellow texture to the cup. Taking the experience a notch higher are lively aromas of Mirabelle plum which comes through towards the end and lingers on, making for a distinctive experience of Summer black from this rich terroir.
