WELL, THE HISTORY OF TEA IS A COLOURFUL ONE. IT’S A TALE OF ROYALS AND ROGUES, HEROES AND VILLAINS...


MINT & BLACK

NAGALAND BLACK TEA, HAND ROLLED SINGLE ESTATE 

Whats with Hush Hush then?

Gentleman bootlegger Bill McCoy, who rose to infamy during the Prohibition for producing the finest whiskey money could buy. Always on the lookout for the next raid, his speakeasy patrons would keep things hush hush by sipping their hooch out of dainty teacups.  These days we prefer our tea moonshine-free, but, just like Bill, our stuff is always the real McCoy!

A mix of black tea and mint giving this tea a fresh minty freshness whilst still maintaining its tea taste.

 

INGREDIENTS: Nagaland Black Tea, Peppermint


EARL GREY

Whats with Royals & Rogues then?

Royal Governor of Boston, Thomas Hutchinson, who found himself in a spot of bother after famously refusing to let a British tea shipment leave the harbour. Things went pear-shaped for Tom when demonstrators against the British Tea Act, disguised as native Americans, boarded the ships and tipped all 46 tonnes of tea into the sea. And so, the biggest brew in history – now aptly known as the Boston Tea Party – marked the start of the American Revolution.

INGREDIENTS: Nagaland Black Tea, Italian Bergamot Oil


BREAKFAST

Whats with Hide & Seek then?

Robert Fortune, who was responsible for a fair bit of hide and seek in his time. Disguised as a local, he entered China seeking precious tea seeds and cultivation methods. Hiding them in many ingenious ways he smuggled them out of the country and introduced tea growing to India. So here’s to you Robert – you sneaky rascal!

INGREDIENTS: Nagaland Black Tea


INDIAN SUMMER CHAI

Whats with Smugglers Spice then?

Fiery Irishwoman Anne Bonny and her lover, Calico Captain Jack Rackman, a ferocious couple who belonged to the infamous Pirates of the Caribbean crew.  Together they outwitted the British forces for years, wreaking havoc as they smuggled tea and spices across the West Indies. So bottoms up me hearties – before we make you walk the plank!
