Yunnan Green

A delicious Green Tea from China. This tea is from the South West Province of Yunnan, China. Many Green teas use a ‘roasting’ process which can impart a slightly burnt or ashy taste. Many people’s first experience of trying Green Tea is of a roasted tea and this is often the reason many people say they don’t like Green Tea.

This Yunnan Green tea uses a ‘steaming’ process which enables the true floral fragrance to dominate. Green tea has not undergone a fermentation, or oxidation, stage during manufacture and is dried whilst still green – hence its name. (Black tea changes from green to dark brown when it is allowed to oxidise).

 

Brew – After the kettle has boiled, leave for a couple of minutes before adding to the leaf. For best results, no more than 3 mins (but you will work out what’s best for you). Never ever add milk.

Earl Grey

A light, refreshing blend with added oil of bergamot, a citrus fruit.

This version of the traditional Earl Grey tea includes a base blend of Darjeeling and Ceylon tea so it is lighter and less powerful than most others.

There are records of tea being flavoured with bergamot oil in the early 1800s but it was probably given its name in honour of Charles Grey, the 2nd Earl Grey and British Prime Minister in the 1830s.

There is no fixed recipe for the ‘Earl Grey’ blend and many companies disguise inferior teas by over loading them with oil. We have used quality high grown Darjeeling and Ceylon teas and just enough oil to allow the tea flavour through. The result is a delightfully light, refreshing blend which can be drunk at any time of day.

 

Brew – For best results, 4 to 5 mins (but you will work out what’s best for you) Can be drunk with milk but try it with lemon or orange for a change.

Teacaf

This tea is from High Grown area of the Nilgris in South India which is known for its exeptional quality. It has been naturally decaffinated (Caffeine 0.2%) and thegentle process means it retains its characteristic pungency & briskness.

 

Brew - Everyone makes tea their own way but with this tea we recommend using freshly bolied water and 1 teaspoon per cup in a warmed teapot. Brew for 4 - 5 minutes. Serve with or without milk. 

Breakfast Blend

A good strong tea for Breakfast time.

This blend is based on a thick Assam tea with some added finesse from a lighter tea from Ceylon.

Many versions of English Breakfast Tea exist and vary significantly in quality. The term was first used in 1843 by a tea blender in New York and he created his blend from various Chinese teas. Later, as tea growing spread to Assam in Northern India and Sri Lanka (Ceylon) blends were produced using these two origins. Today the term English Breakfast is of no use in judging what might be in the blend as teas from anywhere in the world might be included. As a result there is no way of knowing if it is of inferior or superior quality.

Brew – For best results, 4 – 5 mins (but you will work out what’s best for you) really should be drunk with milk 

Darjeeling

A light golden tea with delicate flavour.

Darjeeling lies in the foothills of the Himalayas and the teas from this area have a distinctive flavour renowned all over the world.

There are two main types of tea bush; Camellia Sinensis var. sinensis and Camellia Sinensis var. assamica. The sinensis variety has a smaller leaf and is able to withstand lower temperatures than assamica.

The Darjeeling district lies in the foothills of the Himalayas at 2000 to 6000 feet above sea level and this makes the sinensis variety ideal – the temperature is rarely above 20˚C and can drop below 0˚C in the winter.

The temperature, altitude, soil and bush type, make this slow growing tea the ‘Queen of Teas’ and the highest prices in the world are paid for some of its production

Tealicious's Darjeeling tea was plucked during the ‘first flush’ when the spring warmth is just allowing the first of the slowest growth.

 

Brew – For best results, 3 mins (but you will work out what’s best for you). You can add milk but the flavour is best enjoyed without
