High (iced) tea time!

June 14, 2015

With the barometer hitting 30°C last week, we decided it was high time we put some iced tea recipes out there for you to enjoy.

While a hot cup of tea can be quite refreshing during the summer months, hot weather and iced tea presents a great opportunity to experience the subtle flavours of tea in a whole new context.

Any of our teas can be served iced, but we particularly recommend our fruit tisanes for this purpose, including Raspberry and Orange, Juicy Ginger and Rosebud Lemonade teas.

Iced tea can be made using two methods – pour over, using traditional hot tea brewed at double strength and cold brew, which is tea steeped in cold water for a long time. The latter tends to draws out the flavours more gently and is less likely to give rise to bitterness, particularly in black, green and oolong tea.

It's an exciting week here at Debonair Tea Company HQ – our very first directly sourced tea is finally available to buy! 

Darjeeling teas, and particularly the range produced at Glenburn, are absolute favourites of our co-founder and in-house sommelier, Louisa.

The name ‘Darjeeling’ literally means the ‘land of the thunderbolt’. The British acquired the land here in 1835, the first tea seeds were sown in 1839 and following bumper harvests, private growers had more than 2,000 plants growing in the area by 1853. It was not until 1856 that the first commercial tea garden was established.

June 24, 2017

Given that some of the very finest tea producing regions are seasonal so that the tea plant only grows in warmer temperatures, Spring is a very exciting time in tea production. Indeed, the plucking season in India, China, Japan and even Europe – including England’s Tregothnan tea gardens (pictured) – run from March through to November.

Following harvesting and processing, the very first of the new season’s tea leaves begin to make their way across the world from Asia in time for early summer.
