The per­fect steam­ing mon­soon cuppa – Sub­lime House of tea

The Luxury Collection - - Contents -

Cel­e­brated au­thor Henry James says in his book, Por­trait of a Lady, “There are few hours in life more agree­able than the hour ded­i­cated to the cer­e­mony known as af­ter­noon tea.”

In­deed, there are many for whom a cup of chai is al­ways wel­come, at any time of the day, and not just tea time. Some would say, with ref­er­ence to Great Bri­tain, that there is a whole coun­try of peo­ple whose lives re­volve around this am­ber drink. Tea is, per­haps, the only bev­er­age other than wine that has had peo­ple wax­ing po­etic and philo­soph­i­cal, and has a com­pre­hen­sive cul­ture of its own. The world over, fine tea is syn­ony­mous with fine liv­ing and has been ever since the first tea was brewed five thou­sand years ago.

Tea drink­ing in In­dia, as well, has evolved over the last few years from the reg­u­lar cup of ‘chai’ to a height­ened sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence and a state­ment of style. It is against this back­drop that Sub­lime House of Tea was born.

Sub­lime House of Tea ad­dresses those dis­cern­ing few who are par­tic­u­lar not only about the tea they drink, but how they drink it and the man­ner in which it is brewed. It calls for a finer sen­si­bil­ity to dis­tin­guish the nu­anced dif­fer­ences that make ev­ery va­ri­ety and blend of tea an ex­cep­tional sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence. It is this sen­si­bil­ity that Sub­lime teas res­onate with. For this rea­son, you will find that the range has been se­lected with care to value qual­ity rather than quan­tity. While there are reg­u­lar blends that you will en­joy as your sta­ple cup, Sub­lime also brings you some special teas in lim­ited vol­umes. This

lat­ter part of the of­fer­ing helps you vary your rou­tine oc­ca­sion­ally by ex­plor­ing a new flavour and dis­cov­er­ing nu­ances that make tea drink­ing all the more of a plea­sure. Join Sub­lime in their jour­ney. Brew a Sub­lime blend, af­ter the time hon­oured fash­ion, breathe in the dis­tinct aroma and savour the sub­tle flavours. Feel the spirit course through you as you raise your sails in a cup of fine Sub­lime tea.
