Our Xmas collection
Green sencha with the fragrance of orange peel, almonds, rose petals and pieces of cinnamon, clove, cardamom and citrus anise. This tea is a perfect accompaniment to your festive sweet, with the aroma of citrus fruits and star anise lingering on the palate.
Aromatic black tea with sweet and spicy tints to match ideally with the flavours of the Xmas meal. The sweet and sour duet of dried cherry and apple is in perfect harmony with the orchestra of festive spices such as cinnamon, clove, coriander, cardamom and red pepper.
An aristocratic blend based on the white tea Bai Mu Dan. It imparts a sweet and nutty cup which is excellently combined with the sweet aromas of winter fruits, spices and nuts, such as apple, orange, dog rose, cardamom, star anise and almonds.
The Gifts of the Magi
An ensemble of dried fruit and spices, earthy and nutty aromas to give that special scent to those seasonal moments. Sweet liqueur with honeyed notes from a cup with shades of vivacious red. Apple, orange, beetroot and hibiscus regale them with their colour and fragrance, while the almond, cardamom and star anise give them that sweet intensity throughout.
Christmas in Vienna
An opulent combination of dried fruit and spices which recreate the charm of this fairytale capital city. This cup comes in a deep red colour from the hibiscus and the dog rose. Sour and slightly spicy in flavour, it blends together perfectly the sweet aromas of currants, apple, raisins, almond and cinnamon as well as the dried tropical fruit such as papaya, mango and pineapple.
A Xmas concoction based on black tea which is adorned visually and in flavour by sugary snowflakes. The mouth is awash with sweet-bitter aromas of cocoa bean shell and caramelized almonds, while the scattered seeds of red pepper inject the necessary intensity. It will remind you of a confection of almond liqueur and dark chocolate, and accompanies marvelously your special Xmas get togethers.
The fragrant hues of Xmas in a single cup! The hot aromas of hazelnut praline and chocolate flakes are beautifully matched with the bitter, tangy cocoa bean shells in a Sencha green tea base. Tea with an extra-long aftertaste which fills your home with the aroma of cookies just out of the oven.
