A Tea & Wine Appreciation & Pairing Event, followed by sumptuous dinner. Its our way to show how a gourmet tea & a fine wine are very similar when it comes to appreciation and pairing.

The Wines for the evening for appreciation:
1. Sula Brut
2. Kadu Chenin Blanc
3. Kadu Rose
4. Kadu Cabernet Sauvignon

Served with olives, cheese and bread basket.

Teas for the evening:

High Altitude Himalayan White Silver Needle
The Himalayas grows some of the most exotic teas in the country – Darjeeling and Sikkim and the neighbouring Nepal; and silver needles, or the silver buds are prized possessions for any tea lover. This Silver Needle tea is smooth like silk on your hand, and gives you a subtle aroma with a hint of Himalayan wilderness when brewed.

Hand blend Green Jasmine
This tea is hand blended with two exotic Green teas – Green tea from China & Nilgiris, India. The Romance tea, as we call it, is again blended with organic Jasmine flower to indulge your senses. With the rains in Bangalore, this is love in a cup.

Darjeeling Second flush
The Champagne Tea! The legendary Muscatel flavour of Darjeeling Tea is best experienced in its second or the summer flush. We can write several pages, yet it would not be sufficient to truly describe a Darjeeling tea - it’s a tea to experience.

Kashmiri Kahwa
The royal tea of India! Coming from the valleys of Kashmir, Kahwa was once the drink of the kings, noblemen and rich; so it’s not surprising that this tea is made with fine green tea combined with cardamom, almonds, cinnamon, cloves and saffron in good measure. A dessert tea of India, you have to try it to even start understanding its multiple levels of aroma and flavour.
