Fleur de Tea

+

Organic tippy black tea blended with tea flowers

Jazz up your day with Fleur de Tea, an inventive blend of organic, hand-rolled black tea leaves and golden tea flowers. This winning combination brews up a brisk infusion with saintly notes of honey, almond and cherry. Truly a tea of champions!

Contents: Loose leaf Tippy Golden Orange Pekoe (black tea), tea flowers

Origin: Uva, Sri Lanka

Harvest: June 2019

Tasting Notes: Honey, almond, cherry, raisin

Whether black, white, green or oolong, all tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, which also happens to occasionally produce beautiful flowers. Though these flowers are usually discarded, our incredibly inventive Fleur de Tea celebrates the bloom, marrying it with hand-picked, hand-rolled Tippy Golden Orange Pekoe black tea. 

It takes many hours for our partner tea pluckers to carefully pick the tiny flowers in the early mornings during the Sri Lankan dry season. The natural honey-like sweetness from the flowers beautifully complements the brisk and bold flavors of the tea. The final cup is simultaneously unconventional and unforgettable.

Gachi Grower Sri Lanka Fleur de Tea

Fleur de Tea is grown, picked and hand-crafted on a bio-organic tea garden in the highlands of Sri Lanka’s Uva Province. Nestled among gushing waterfalls and lush jungles, the small, community-focused farm is dedicated to producing quality teas through ethical, sustainable practices.

Workers here are not just a part of a factory-line process – which is often the case with most Sri Lankan tea estates – but are empowered in their craft. In addition to learning the stages of the tea-making process, workers are instructed how to keep records about the upkeep and crafting of the teas. They earn 10 percent of the estate's revenues in addition to their wages, while another portion of the estate's revenues is reserved for community-building initiatives and supporting local village families.

Our partner growers also emphasize environmental sustainability by using strict, all-natural growing methods. No chemicals, artificial fertilizers or pesticides are used on the farm. Rather, our partner growers utilize their own compost, organic sprays and manure from their own herd of rescue cows.

Because of our partner grower’s unique approach, their workers enjoy long-term, rewarding employment, and their Ceylon teas are of unprecedented quality and innovation.
