Finest Darjeeling

"My day always starts with a high-quality Japanese green tea, and during the morning I treat myself to a bowl of Matcha. During the afternoon, I like to pour myself a cup of Darjeeling, Ceylon or Assam black tea. I usually end the evening with a fine herbal tea."

"I like drinking Japanese green tea very much. My favorite is a cup of Gyokuro. I like to cover my daily liquid needs with various soothing Ayurvedic herbal and spice teas, such as my current favorite, Figur Day & Figur Night."

Superior Yunnan

"I like to start the day with a freshly whipped matcha. It makes me fit! Throughout the day, I drink different types of oolong or sometimes an earthy Yunnan black tea. In the evening, before I go to sleep, I enjoy a calming herbal tea with Swiss mountain herbs."

Matcha Horai

"I start my day with a vitamin-rich matcha, which I refine with a squeeze of lemon juice. Throughout the day, I enjoy a variety of Japanese green teas. Before I go to sleep, I drink a cup of white tea, which calms me down and ensures optimal sleep."

Darjeeling - The Jewel on the Himalayas

Around the city of Darjeeling and at an altitude between 1500 and 2800 meters are the most famous plantations in India. Because this area is so close to the foot of the Himalayas, it is also called the "Place of Thunder". Not only because the Queen has her Five o`clock Tea served daily in the form of a Top Second Flush, but because of the unique aroma development, these varieties are also known as "Kings among teas".
