Adventurer's Companion Gift Box

Wiedouw Organic Long-cut Rooibos & Nepal Fikkal Ilam

Travel on a sensory journey from the Cederberg Mountains in the semi-desert Western Cape of South Africa to the rolling verdant hills of Nepal. Taking you back two centuries when European adventurers and traders were discovering new worlds and setting up tea estates from India to Africa, these two teas will take you on a journey of sensuous delight.


The most tea-like of herbal teas, naturally caffeine free Rooibos (Redbush is renowned for its health properties. From the Wiedouw estate in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa, where it is organically grown, hand-picked and cured naturally in the sun, this special long-cut Rooibos has a soothing aroma and sweet vibrant taste.


Paired with a delicious first flush from Nepal, whose tea industry has been slow to develop, but the fantastic, little-known, Darjeeling-style teas from this fabled Himalayan land are starting to make waves. This wonderfully complex tea, from the Fikkal tea estate in Ilam, delivers an amazing jammy sweetness, and pepper, caramel and almond flavours that linger tantalisingly on the tongue.

Grown only in the Cederberg mountains in the semi-desert Western Cape of South Africa, Rooibos – Afrikaans for ‘red bush’ – is naturally green but gets its deep red colour and rich flavour from fermentation similar to that of black tea. The only single estate Rooibos avilable in the UK, grown organic since 1997 on the Wiedouw farm near Vanrhynsdorp. Although in 1772 botanist Carl Thunberg was the first Westerner to mention this wild shrub, the indigenous Khoisan were well aware of Rooibos’ remarkable health benefits and had been brewing it for centuries. The Cape’s early Dutch settlers adopted Rooibos instead of expensive black tea from Europe. In 1904 Russian immigrant Benjamin Ginsberg, recognising its potential, became the first to trade it from the Bushmen and pioneered its cultivation.

 

From the award winning tea garden in Nepal, whose teas are winning worldwide recognition. Special 'secet' production methods from his garden nestled high in the mountains and not available on any of the tea markets, these rare loose-leaf black teas are amongst the finest in the world. Teas from Ilam, in eastern Nepal, have gained worldwide recognition in the past ten years. The area’s high altitude, moist climate, mineral rich soils and young bushes create a delightful brew. From the Fikkal, these tan leaves scattered with silver-gold tips, yield a fragrant, Darjeeling-style liquor with a muscatel character. Flavourful with a woody cedar edge, it fills the mouth with layers of fruit jam, almonds and caramel.
