This set is designed for tea drinkers looking to transition out of the confines of the tea bag and into the world of specialty loose-leaf tea. We thought long and hard about how to best introduce people to loose-leaf tea, and we decided that two things mattered most (at least to us!): tea that was guaranteed to deliver a dazzling cup and a convenient way to make it.
This loose-leaf tea starter kit includes two teas that are delicious and forgiving when brewed. Nepali Golden Black is a high-end, organic black tea from Nepal’s first tea cooperative. This rich, aromatic whole-leaf tea has the familiar strength and boldness people associate with black tea, and layered with bright sweet fruit that often sparks wide eyes upon first sip. The other one is Darjeeling Green, a juicy, floral organic green tea from the legendary Makaibari Estate. It’s an easy steeping green, slow to release the astringency that often catches people off guard with green teas. Both teas can be steeped multiple times, with new flavors and aromas revealing themselves over time, a hallmark of quality loose-leaf.
To make tea steeping a breeze, we’ve included a folding infuser that fits into any cup and comes with a drip tray to hold the basket after the tea is made for mess-free brewing. Create a unique tea experience to match the tea to the moment.
