Sublime tea is available at Sublime Galleria, 8th Floor, UB City. Tea is certainly one of the oldest beverages to be brewed and drunk. With such an ancient heritage, there is little wonder that it has come to occupy an exalted position in the rarefied rituals that define social standing.
The brewing and drinking of tea is an art. Indeed, in many cultures it has been elevated to the status of an almost spiritual experience. The well known Japanese tea ceremony was developed by Buddhist monks to both symbolize and foster spiritual enlightenment. It was, and is, an elaborate ritual that is a mark of refinement and culture. On the other side of the globe, the English took tea to their hearts and made it both their national drink and an indelible part of upper class social customs. The ritual of ‘afternoon tea’ became a symbol of late Victorian and Edwardian gentility, two eras which in many ways represented the acme of English social evolution, when lifestyles were both leisurely and certain In India, of course, tea has always been drunk, originally
in the hills of Assam and later, thanks to the British, all over the country. However, it has always been regarded as something of a plebeian drink, and, at best, a morning or evening refresher. It is only of late that it has acquired a resurgence of momentum and made its way up the social ladder to don the robes of a lifestyle drink. Today the Indian tea drinker is a discerning individual who knows her sencha from her oolong. And she knows the best way to brew and drink them too. Not for her the overboiled, strong ‘chai’ that is thickly suffused with milk and sugar. Her palate has acquired a finer sensibility and will not be pleased by just any old brew. For her, tea is not just a drink, it is an uplifting sensory experience in itself.
It is for this new, evolved and sophisticated tea aficionado, who is growing in number by the day, that Sublime House of Tea presents its supremely well selected range. Quality first seems to be the clarion call in the composition of the Sublime tea portfolio and the brand is clearly not here to be all things to all people. Rather it presents a range in which a true tea connoisseur will be certain to find a tea to match his every mood and every occasion that he may find himself in.
For starters, it offers you a few classic blends, like the robust English Breakfast, the tangy Earl Grey and the tried and tested Assam CTC. These are proven blends that have been sanctified by the patronage of the best classes of society.
Alongside, you have more contemporary staples to delve into, like the Green Long Ding, a pure green tea, the Jasmine Mandarin, which is green tea with the floral notes of jasmine and a Wellness Brew, which puts a twist on the classic Indian masala chai. These teas form part of the new culture of tea drinking, which calls for nuanced expertise and taste.
From here Sublime takes you into more adventurous and avant garde territory. Step off the well worn path into unexplored terrain. Sample Moroccan Mint, a nippy tea composed of green tea flavoured with mint, or Seventh Heaven, Nilgiris black tea infused with the aromas of tropical fruit, and White Tea with Raspberry, in which the delicate flavour of white tea is set off by the delightful aroma of raspberry. This last mentioned type of tea is especially popular in countries like Russia, where they actually mix raspberry jam in their tea. In fact, tennis diva Maria Sharapova lists Raspberry Tea as her favourite after training drink.
Finally, Sublime also presents a few herbal brews, like the popular Camomile tea and a special blend of their own called Rose in Bloom, thereby making for a complete and well rounded portfolio.
What all this means is that with Sublime you can enjoy your daily cup in the most refined manner possible, while injecting variety into your routine by stepping off the beaten path, occasionally, to explore a new flavour and discover nuances that make tea drinking all the more of a pleasure.
If you are a tea drinker, then you are strongly recommended to try Sublime. Chances are that you will make it your staple cuppa after your first sip. If you do not drink tea at all, may we suggest that you embark on a journey of discovery with Sublime House of Tea? It will be one of the most invigorating, satisfying and edifying decisions you have ever taken.
