£65.00

Created around the refreshing and uplifting Jasmine and Darjeeling sparkling tea from Saicho (which features on many a 5 star hotel menu), we have created this afternoon tea hamper with a difference. This delightful and innovative hamper includes a range of delicately flavoured sweet and savoury gourmet delights that have been thoughtfully paired, to pushes the boundaries of afternoon teas to exciting new horizons.

Order fulfilled by Gourmet Luxe.

Saicho comes in 2 expressions:
Darjeeling, which has notes of mandarin, ginger and wood spice and gentle, dry tannins which makes it incredibly food friendly and an ideal accompaniment to grilled pork or a hearty lasagne.
Jasmine, which is beautifully floral and has notes of fresh green apples, lychee, elderflower and of course jasmine. A touch of sweetness and the slightly chewy tannins make it a great alternative to Moscato d’Asti to accompany desserts like peach melba, elderflower jellies or panna cotta.

PERFECTLY PAIRED

Matteo Montone, Wine Director at Berners Tavern:
Darjeeling has aromas of ripe yellow plums, golden apple skin and blonde tobacco. At the palate has a fine mousse with good texture, tannins and a fruity finish. Perfect with seabass ceviche served with avocado, tomatoes and ginger sauce. The tannins and the bubbles counterbalance the oiliness of the dish, while cleansing the palate.
Jasmine has a pronounced floral character with rose petal, creamy texture and refreshing spicy finish. Reminds me of the texture of a Kabinett Riesling but with bubbles. I would match it with poached lobster served with a lemon verbena reduction. The acidity and bubbles of the tea cut well through the sweet meat of the lobster.
