This black tea was grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling, India, at almost 2,000 metres above sea level. Harvested in the summer to develop its unique Darjeeling flavour, the tea has notes of wood spice, nectarine and muscatel and has a subtle astringency.
Darjeeling is a town situated on the slopes of the Himalayas and has some of the highest tea gardens in the world. At almost 2,000 metres above sea level, the tea leaves grow more slowly which, along with the region’s loamy soil and pure mountain air, develops a unique muscatel flavour, redolent of muscat grapes. Darjeeling is often referred to as the “Champagne of teas” due to its deep fruity and floral flavour. This tea is hand-picked in the summer when the muscatel flavour is most pronounced and the leaves have turned a beautiful purplish-brown colour.
Ingredients: 24 Hour Cold Brewed Darjeeling Tea (93%), White Grape Juice From Concentrate, Acid (Citric Acid), Vitamin C, Carbon Dioxide.
Store in a cool, dry place. Once opened, keep refrigerated and consume within two days.
Darjeeling Sparkling Cold Brew Tea by Saicho
Charlie and Natalie have always had a passion for food and drink. However, Natalie can't drink alcohol (she turns as red as a tomato with even the smallest sip) so hasn't been able to fully enjoy the experience of food and wine pairing.
Wanting to create non-alcoholic drinks that could pair well with food, Charlie and Natalie turned to tea. There are such an incredible variety of teas, from floral to fruity, nutty to smoky, dependent on the variety, terroir and production method of each tea. After two years of testing hundreds of different teas from around the world, they chose their first three teas; carefully selected to pair well with food.
Each tea is cold brewed for twenty four hours to extract the most delicate and complex flavours from the tea leaves. The teas are then finely balanced with a hint of sweetness and a dash of acidity. As a finishing touch, sparkling the drink enhances the flavour of the tea.
