A truly "royal" tea from Temi, the only plantation in the former kingdom of Sikkim, now the most northerly Indian state. The garden produces teas with a distinctive, fruity character. This tea from the late first flush picking convinces with its elegant flavour, its full body and the finely worked leaf. Sikkim, a province close to Darjeeling is noted for having a strong Darjeeling taste with a touch of Assam. This is a black tea that is most enjoyable.

Brew Ha-Ha

Black tea is a variety of tea from the Camellia sinensis plant that is a species of an evergreen shrub or small tree from the family Theaaceae whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce 'TEA'

Black Tea is fully oxidized in comparison to others like Green, Oolong or White which are much less oxidized. Black Tea is the most popular of all the teas and the most widely consumed in the world.

  • alkaloids, including caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, amino acids, carbohydrates, proteins, chlorophyll, fluoride, aluminum, minerals and trace elements, volatile organic compounds, which contribute to its odor and taste

The antioxidant effect of black tea is due to its polyphenol content. Polyphenols are chemical compounds that protect plants from ultraviolet radiation and harmful, disease-causing pathogens. Flavonoids are one type of polyphenol. They occur in grapes, red wine, and other foods.
