"Single Estate Tea"

Tea is a beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot water over processed leaves of the tea plant ( sometimes boiling with milk also).  After water, Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling and astringent flavour that many people enjoy. "Single Estate" refers to any tea that comes from only one Tea Estate or garden or specific Tea plantation as opposed to being a blend from various estates. Single Estate Tea is unblended. These teas tend to have unique characteristics particular to that estate for that season. Single estate tea can be identified by the name of the estate. The flavor, quality and character of tea depends on the region, the altitude, the type of soil and climate in which it is grown. Because of variables in weather, single estate teas can never be exactly the same each time. The region in which a tea is grown can influence its flavor in profound ways. Even if the production process is similar, geographical factors such as climate and soil can change how the final tea tastes. Single origin tea allows to experience the diversity of flavors and aromas of tea produced in different regions.
