Kinnettles Gold Scottish Grown Loose Leaf Black Tea (2019 Harvest)

2019 Harvest

Kinnettles Gold is a unique, Scottish grown single estate tea. This distinctly flavoured tea is grown and hand-rolled on Kinnettles Farm in Angus by Susie Walker-Munro. It has been produced since 2015 in batches of less than 2kg per year.

Only 2kg of the tea was produced in 2019, which are exclusively available from PekoeTea in limited-edition 20g tins and 5g samples.

Kinnettles Gold tea has been processed using secret techniques, specially-developed for the Scottish climate with the help of tea consultant Beverly-Claire Wainwright, who has worked on producing the exquisite teas from Amba estate in Sri Lanka. Beverly’s philosophy is to match processing methods to suit the terroir, rather than copying methods from other countries.

As Scotland’s terroir is unique, Beverly and Susie have created unique processing methods to ensure the tea lives up to its full taste potential.

True to its name, the hand-rolled, golden tipped leaves infuse to a rich golden liquor.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
