Queen Elizabeth Blend
This tea from our heritage Makaibari estate in Darjeeling is a favourite of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It was gifted to her by the honourable Prime Minister of India on his visit to Buckingham Palace in 2015. The uniqueness of this tea is in its creation - it is grown biodynamically - surrounded by forests that feed its flavour. It is then plucked ceremonially, to the tune of a cosmic calendar, dictated by the rhythms of the sun and the moon.
Tasting Notes: Fresh, delicate, floral, astringent with hints of peach.
The Estate: From the iconic Makaibari Tea Estate in Darjeeling, comes the Summer Solstice tea also termed as the second flush. Amidst pristine Himalayan forests, the tea is grown in harmony with the nature surrounding it. The leaves are harvested at dawn during May - June. The resulting cup is light, soothing and delicate with a fresh yet intense aroma.
