Pathivara Tea estate is located 2000 meters above sea level, making it the highest altitude garden in the Himalayan mountains. This high altitude and the low yearly temperature in addition to a wealth of biodiversity enable this producer to create singular and noteworthy teas. The dedication to producing only specialty grade tea and the passion for quality ensure this farm’s consistency.
Tasting notes: white peach, radish, creamy
Place 1.5g of tea in a cup that can hold a bit more than 100ml of water.
Bring water to 80°c and pour 100ml into your cup.
Let it steep for 2 minutes.
Feel free to play around with your tea. See how the used leaves smell after you brewed your tea and compare it to how the tea tastes. Change the brewing temperature as well and taste how that affects the flavour of the tea.
If you are serious about tea or would like to be, we recommend investing in a little scale that is able to measure 0.1g and a fancy water boiler with temperature control.
Shelf life for your tea: Tea doesn’t really expire, it ages and as it does it hits a peak at a certain point. Some varieties at Companion Tea are intentionally aged. They always try to sell everything while tasting best.
