Inspired by an ancient recipe created in a Tibetan monastery, Thé des Moines is a rare blend with a unique flavor.
Legend tells how the monks would prepare this blend of tea, plants and flowers in the greatest of secrecy. After several days of soaking, the leaves were carefully Plucked out and put to one side. By this mysterious alchemy the monks turned the tea into gold and gave Thé des Moines its exceptional scent.
The canister, containing 3.5 oz (100g) of whole-leaf tea, features an illustration inspired by Tibetan landscapes:
- Made from lacquered metal, it protects tea from air and light
- This practical canister can be stacked with the other coloured canisters
- Sold in a clear case, it makes a perfect gift
- The canister contains 100g of whole-leaf tea
Throughout the year, our experts travel in the tea plantations looking for the best pluckings and new, rare, delicious teas.
The fact that we travel so extensively, that we taste and buy on location has many advantages and allows us to find rare crops by looking outside the traditional supplier circuit, to taste and to share with you the harvests of small plantations, which are often hidden away.
Visiting tea estates regularly and thereby establishing long-lasting relations with our suppliers allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy, and to continue our mission: to bring you the best quality teas and to share our travels and experience with you, while concerning ourselves with environmental issues, working conditions on the estates and the fair trade practices to which we adhere.
