French Afternoon Tea

Friday, June 8th, 2012

We often asked why ‘Chateau Rouge’ and why French tea sold in England? Well the answer is really simple, besides being in love with both Paris and London, finding it impossible to have to live in only one or the other, and creating a brand that enables us to have both. The real question you may be asking is, if England is known the world over for it’s love of tea and in many ways for creating the ‘afternoon tea’ tradition, then how does France fit into the picture and do they really drink tea in France?

Luxury…Darjeeling Express…the most memorable train trip in the world in search of the best first flush Darjeeling teas…

Darjeeling Train Fruit shop stopMemories of Darjeeling…

As I sit here on the train from London to St. Ives, winding my way through the beautiful Dorset countryside memories come flooding back to me of the times I have been aboard the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway from New Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling. This is quite simply the most mesmerising journey I have ever been on . Words can do little justice to the serene beauty on offer during this seven hour weave through the Himalayan Mountains.

Early morning - Temi Tea Estate, South Sikkim, India

Early morning - Temi Tea Estate, South Sikkim, India

Back again after a few weeks trying some fantastic first flushes from Darjeeling. We thought its a great opportunity to tell you about our little secret… Sikkim Temi 1st flush. Like with all our teas we go to great lengths to choose teas with a story, and the Sikkim Temi is a tea that is no different. It comes from the only tea estate in Sikkim, a government owned estate that has been producing fantastic teas since the 1960′s. Not only are teas from Temi as good as neighbouring Darjeeling, but what makes this tea even more special is the surroundings… Read the rest of this entry »
