Perthshire quality water + good tea - what's not to taste!
We welcome tea lovers from around the world.
We want to celebrate local craft tea, and a selection of our favourite interesting teas from around the world paired with the best seasonal and regional ingredients.
Are you new to tea? Its incredibly healthy and good for you and its very uplifting!
If tea is fresh and you have good tasting water - it is hard to go wrong. Good tea has a unique aroma, a body, and an after taste. Tea bags are convenient and fast, made with fine particles - but in a bag you never get the complex flavours and body. The nuances of loose whole leaf tea are what you need to achieve the legal euphoria that whole leaf tea can give, leaving you hydrated and focussed.
Tea covers a vast spectrum of flavours, from delicate white, grassy green tea, fruity oolongs, rich malty black teas, and woody puerh teas. Creating the perfect cup of tea is as much a science as an art form.
We love experimenting with tea and food, pairing teas with local savoury and sweet foods to enhance and compliment the flavours. For tea pairing use glass teaware so you can appreciate the quality of the whole leaf loose tea and enjoy the vivid colours of the teas as they infuse.
For tea tastings we use traditional professional tea tasting porcelain cups with matching lids and tasting bowl - these are used by professionals around the world for evaluating the characteristics of tea, including aroma, flavour and infusion colour. The lidded cup captures the aromas of tea and the bowl highlights the true infusion colours of tea. Multiple sets are used side by side to compare teas, offering consistency to fairly evaluate the tea samples.
