darjeeling

Where the sky seems ever so close, Darjeeling is grown. The tea gardens of the Darjeeling district spread out over the southern slopes of the Himalayas to up to 2,000 meters. In these conditions the plants grow slowly and therefore have plenty of time to develop their delicate flavour. Darjeeling is considered as one of the best teas in the world and is also called the “Champagne of teas”. Only premium teas with perfect fragrance and aroma are selected for our Darjeeling. A heavenly treat.

earl grey

It is the bergamot flavour that makes this blend special. A light Chinese leaf tea and a sweetish Ceylon low in tannins are the basis of this Earl Grey. Legends surround the origin of this tea, one story suggesting that bergamot oil spilt onto bales of tea during a rough sea passage. The British Prime Minister Earl Grey was the first to try the seemingly spoilt tea whose taste he approved. This black tea with the little extra is still one of the most popular teas in the world.

green tea passion

In its country of origin, China, unfermented green tea has been appreciated for thousands of years for its beneficial effect. In Europe, too, it has become popular.

brew for only two minutes
