A very aromatic medium leaf tea with a round and spicy bouquet. Lively and complex. The name Sikkim is derived from an ancient Sanskrit word meaning mountainous landand was coined by Nepalese settlers hundreds of years ago. The province which spreads out below Mount Khanchendzonga in the Eastern Himalayas is arguably one of the most beautiful tea growing regions of the world. This mountain at 8540 meters above sea level soars into the heavens and as such is revered by the Sikkimese as a protective deity. Sikkim is also home to thunderously flowing rivers dense forests and lush valleys. It is in amongst these valleys that the Nepalese besides giving a name to the place introduceda system of terraced cultivation by cutting fields into the mountainsides like great giant steps. It is on these terraces that you will find Temi tea estate considered by many to be the pride of Sikkim. Temi Estate was first planted in 1969.
