The spirit of the Tea Beverage is one of peace, comfort and refinement.-Arthur Gray in The Little Tea Book (1903)
Something I experienced when I indulged myself in the exquisite teas from the Sublime House of Tea at during a specially curated High Tea for the Overseas Women’s Club at the beautiful Rim Naam ( The Oberoi Hotel)
An Autumn Afternoon blossomed itself into a breathtakingly beautiful Monsoon Evening (thanks to Bangalore weather). The beautiful sound of the rainy pitter patter around us, the chirping of the birds, the wet shiny lush greenery, the delicate aromas of the brewing teas, presented itself as a tropical romantic bliss.
India, like a few other Asian countries , is a Tea nation. We take pride in the growing and exporting some of the best teas in the world. Exceptionally delicate in flavor, splendidly fragrant gorgeous teas. However not all that is grown and exported reaches our everyday kitchens. Sometimes what we end up sipping is not even tea leaves, but just the dust. In a country where we are spoilt for choices for teas – how do you tell a good tea from not so good one?
I’m not a tea expert but what I can tell you is that if a certain tea can awaken your senses and take it on a sensual journey, lift your spirits, maybe rekindle your memory, or just make you happy – it is good. Good because it would smell, look, taste, feel just great and mainly you would enjoy drinking it.
The Teas from Sublime House of Tea are just that.
Their delicate range of brews will infuse your senses with a beautiful experience that is bound to steep gently into your soul.
They engage in a perennial voyage to discover newer and better experiences of imbibing this divine brew, while always staying in touch with its traditions and roots.The Sublime range of tea has been hand picked with care to value quality and diversity rather than quantity.
Tea sourcing is an art in itself, like tea tasting. The blender determines the end result and the sourcing agents act in concert. It’s the art of blending that produces the magic of taste and flavours; however it’s the quality of the gardens’ produce that determines the perfectness of the outcome.
All of Sublimes tea ranges comes from the most sort after regions and growers from around the world. To know more about their sourcing, blending, packaging and proposition – Click here
