This black tea was grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling, India. Harvested in the summer to develop its unique Darjeeling muscatel flavour, the tea has notes of mandarin, ginger and wood spice and gentle, dry tannins.
Pairs well with grilled meats and roasted vegetables. Katie Exton, sommelier and co-founder of Lorne Restaurant: "This drink was so food friendly. It worked well with charcuterie, it was lovely with chicken tagine, it also tasted great with lasagna. Every time the drink was refreshing and delicate enough not to clash with any of the ingredients or flavours from the food and had these lovely peach and orange fruity notes but with a refreshing not savoury but also not sweet finish. It also worked with chocolate, where it tasted quite malty and caramelly."
