Description

Nepalese Sakura tea: Mid-season

Sakura is a large leaf third flush picking that has developed a deep nectar-like fragrance with a well rounded muscatel character. In the cup Nepalese Sakura tea appears a deep reddy bronze. However it has a younger, fresher flavour than a Darjeeeling. This is due to the youth of the tea bushes which were planted later than in Darjeeling. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for four minutes. Drink without milk.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

  • This is a carefully sourced tea chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour.
  • Loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse.
  • The tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known.
  • A little patience is required when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup.

Which size to choose

  • There are several packing options: 60grams, 125grams and 250grams – the standard being of 125 grams in a packet.
  • You can select packets or a tin caddy with hinged lid which can be selected from the drop-down options.
  • Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea.

How to look after this tea

  • Store the tea with care: ensure it is stored air-tight, away from heat, light, moisture and strong aromas.
  • Our standard best-before is one year.

Delivery options

  • Our standard shipping is second class post unless you choose an alternative option.
  • Free UK shipping is available for orders over £30 and free first class post can be chosen for orders over £50.

    Product:
    Service: Yet again Greys have taken my order, cashed in my payment, sent this questionnaire but not delivered the tea!. I had to send 3 – increasingly annoyed – emails last time. When I buy tea from NBT of F&M it arrives without hassle the following day. Yet this virtually never happens with Greys
    Vendor response: I am sorry you have this view which is not reflected in the experience of the vast majority of our other customers. Your order was despatched within four days. There was some delay whilst we awaited additional stock. We have received no communication from you.
