From soft grassy notes of fresh hay this bright infusion develops into sweet lemon drops combined with the rich tingle of spice.

Longer infusion can build great depth and heat.

Temperature
For the optimum infusion use 100°C (212°F) water.

Time
Infuse for 30 seconds to a minute, tasting regularly. For a more vigorous infusion, leave for longer intervals to develop.

Infusions
You can infuse these herbs at least three times. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Extraordinary Sikkim Ginger
High in the Indian Himalayas, between Nepal and Bhutan, lies the secret region of Sikkim. The Lepcha people cultivate and craft a tea that is truly outstanding.

Between seasons, they prepare this extraordinary ginger, harvesting and drying it in the withering beds, where the tea is laid out to lose moisture and become supple before crafting. The high altitude combined with organic and traditional practices in cultivation and handling result in a ginger with a deeply intense and rounded character that is the very best we have found after an extensive search across the globe.
