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 home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
