Tasting Notes. Kiran, Founder
My Darjeeling is a good companion for the whole day as it manges to be both mellow and easy going but deliver a wonderful rounded earthy flavor.
Before your first sip, breathe in the aroma and you'll be rewarded with that really musky scent of muscatel. It's lovely memory for me as it's the same fragrance that is left on my clothes when i walk around the Makaibari tea estate in Darjeeling.
Rajah, my friend who owns the Makaibari Estate where this tea comes from, lives by this simple mantra:
"the better the soil, the better the taste".
And in this spirit he created the world's first organic biodynamic tea garden, where the tea pickers, wildlife and tea bushes all live in harmony with each other in an environment free of chemical pesticides.
As I always pay a premium for my tea, the tea pickers can use that extra income to invest in things they need, like child care, tree planting and school computers.
Hampstead is a quaint hillside village just a few miles from the bustling center of London. Known for its intellectual, liberal, artistic, musical and literary associations and for the famous Hampstead Heath-a large hilly expanse of parkland. Generations of creative ideas have flourished among lovely tea shops that serve various teas all day long and of course observe the English tradition of afternoon high tea and cakes! It is here that Kiran founded The Hampstead Tea Company to bring to market teas of the highest quality and share her belief that the most enriching moments can be those spent sipping delicious, soul nurturing tea with good friends!
Demeter Organic Biodynamic certification ensures that all our teas are grown using sustainable organic farming methods. These methods reflect a commitment to biodiversity, soil husbandry, livestock integration and the prohibition of genetically engineered organisms.
To get the best from my Assam tea, brew one sachet per person in freshly boiled water for up to 3 minutes. Add milk or cream and sugar to taste.
