Western Himalayan Kangra Oolong Tea
A popular estate from the western Himalayan region in India, this is a surprisingly clean tea that is suited for all times of the day. It has heavy vegetal notes fused with a nutty start and ends on fresh tobacco and burnt wood. The flavours do not linger for too long on the palate and is a great choice to start the day on a low caffeine note. Serve with sugar or honey.
It makes for a great complement to ricotta cheese, tofu, steamed fish, and cured meats.

Dharamsala Mann Premium Kangra First Flush Black Tea (Western Himalayan)
This chinary from the northern Himalayan region of Kangra is a surprise of this year's spring. Unlike the restrained and earthy teas that this region is known to produce, this year's black tea is an aromatic delight which places it in the same league as Darjeeling Green First Flush. A heady, sweet, vegetal profile which is smooth, strong and succulent. The tea begins on notes of forest floor and silk tree blossom with hints of blanched legumes that soon give way to cooked vegetables blended with tree fruit that linger on till the finish.
An ideal cup to start a fresh day on the right note and caffeine to power you through. The tea complements flavours like grilled vegetables, sian salds, sushi and tofu quite well.
