Calcutta is the centre of the Indian tea trade and during it’s heyday - the centre of the British influence in India. In Calcutta the sights and flavors that abound are many and varied. You will look one way and say: ’wow, that is the strangest thing I have ever seen’ only to look another way and say ‘ No that is the strangest’.
The Calcutta Swimming Club and the Tollygung Golf Club both serve teas, which have local character. Our blend takes these profiles into account. We detected notes of aromatic citrus in the garden of the Swimming Club (hence the Earl Grey note). The tea served was sweetened with mango blossom honey (hence the sweet home notes). At the Tollygung they tended towards spice characters such as ginger and Vanilla. Rounding the blend out and drawing all the distinct components together was full flavored Assam - the richest tea in the world.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Pour into your cup and add milk and sugar to taste.
