A mindful cuppa. 🍡 πŸƒ

Even though I love exploring a range of teas from all around the globe, I do rely hugely on these two teas which makes my standard wake – me- ups to kickstart my day – TEMI TEA black and a good true MATCHA.

But this morning, I somehow decided to be a lil’ adventurous and dauntlessly pulled out a pack of tea from Sikkim, which has been sitting in my cupboard since last fall. ( a gift from my dear Aunt)🐰
And as I excitedly tear open the fresh pack of β€œSaa” from Bermiok, I was instantly transported back to the green valleys that perches on the foothills of the Himalayas.
πŸ” The crisp dry leaves welcomes you with a lovely wildflower notes, almost akin to that of wild forest honey, with hints of spice and cocoa. (which awakens my memory of summertime in the Himalayas).

So I brewed this Gongfu method in a gaiwan to get the best out of this beauty. πŸƒ

  • The wet leaf lends a calming aroma of wood fire, tobacco and forest ground.
  • The liquor is a glistening amber cuppa and as you take a sip, the texture is surprisingly smooth ( for a black tea from this region ) with suggestions of cocoa and toast, leaving your mouth with notes of cherry and dried prunes.

And as I write this, I’m on my third brew already, and the tea has now transformed gorgeously into a brioche like sweetness with its toasty notes still.. very much persisting.

  • The empty cup smells of fresh fruits and summer flowers. β˜€οΈ

Overall, I absolutely enjoyed this wonderful robust brew from The Bermiok tea estate and as the name suggests β€œSaa” which means β€œof the earth”, what better way than trying it out yourself to explore and appreciate the unique essence of Mother Nature. 🌏

( This tea surely is going to be added on my morning cuppa’s list and I’m certain it’s also going to make a great pick- me- up afternoon brew, with or without a dash of milk ) πŸ₯° πŸ«–
