    €13.50

      The Lemongrass and Ginger tea (loose-leaf) by the Rare Tea company is a bright infusion of lemongrass gathered from a collection of tiny smallholder organic farms across Sri Lanka - carefully blended with pure ginger from the high Himalayan region of Sikkim in India. 

      Lemongrass:  The lemongrass is made using the tender leaf rather than the woody base. It is grown in a remote mountain tea garden above the Ravana Falls combined with smallholder organic farms across Sri Lanka. 

      Ginger:  High in the Indian Himalayas, between Nepal and Bhutan, lies the secret region of Sikkim. The Lepcha people cultivate and craft a tea that is truly outstanding. Between seasons, they prepare this extraordinary ginger, harvesting and drying it in the withering beds, where the tea is laid out to lose moisture and become supple before crafting. The high altitude combined with organic and traditional practices in cultivation and handling results in a ginger with a deeply intense and rounded character that is the very best found after an extensive search across the globe.
