Bramah Indian and Ceylon Teas

Bramah Indian and Ceylon Teas

 
Bramah Speciality House Blend
Assam and Darjeeling leaf teas designed to introduce the modern tea drinker to the taste of the very best of orthodox leaf tea of fifty years ago. Production of these teas has never ceased, but demand for the different kind of teas in teabags has drastically reduced it. The blend is made from the top two leaves and a bud, plucked at the best time of the year. The taste has an incomparable smoothness and flavour.

Bramah Darjeeling Flowery Orange Pekoe
The tea grown in the Darjeeling gardens is so good that its entire production is still reserved today for orthodox leaf tea. Darjeeling is famous for tasting like muscatel (the skin of a grape), and is known as the 'champagne' of teas. Our blend is made up of a selection from several different gardens to achieve an incomparable flavour.

The word 'Orange' incidentally is an indication of quality and has no connection to flavour whatsoever.

Bramah Assam Broken Orange Pekoe
Assam teas are famous for their rich, malty flavour and are the basis of English breakfast tea, giving you a good start to the day. All the Assam gardens used to make up this blend are of the best quality. There is a difference between this tea and the tea you get in tea bags.

Bramah Ceylon Broken Orange Pekoe
Many Ceylon (Sri Lanka) gardens have gone over entirely to production of faster infusing teas, but few in the Dimbula district from which our blend comes still produce orthodox tea. This blend has a tangerine-like flavour inherent to traditional Ceylon that can only be released in a five-minute infusion. It is an ideal accompaniment for English afternoon tea.

Bramah China Black Teas

Bramah China Black Teas

 
Banks Earl Grey
Bergamot oil from the citrus fruit grown in the Calabria district in Italy had become popular in the 18th and 19th centuries as a flavouring for gin and snuff. It was brought to Joseph Banks attention who is known to have experimented with flavourings. He is credited with adding it to tea and it was most likely given the name Earl Grey since he was the popular Prime Minister of the time.

Bramah Kai Lung Keemun
This fine grade tea coming from the Anhwei Province of North China, has a thick, sappy liquor and a rich aroma and flavour. Our blend is called 'Kai Lung' after the fictional Chinese storyteller Ernest Bramah. There was tremendous interest in all things Chinese in the 20th century.

Bramah Lapsang Souchong
This tea from South China is rich and syrupy with a characteristic smoky flavour. This is achieved through being cured in smoke from white pinewood. The Souchong leaf is almost dead black, large, loose in style and slightly cured. It was most popular in the 1870s and it is known to have been shipped in the Clippers 'Cutty Sark' and 'Flying Cloud'.

Bramah China Green Teas
Bramah Gunpowder
This is the name given to the highest-grade of China, green, unfermented tea with a fresh, subtle flavour. It was originally marketed in many sub-grades. Bramah Gunpowder is a good representative grade, made from young to medium leaves, rolled into pellets, which open to a postage stamp size when infused.

Bramah Jasmine Deluxe
Jasmine tea is served in many Chinese restaurants around the world. Originally jasmine flowers were added as a means of enhancing light liquoring tea. Its delicate taste would be destroyed by the addition of milk or sugar.

Bramah Formosa Oolong
Bramah Formosa Oolong
Oolongs are semi-fermented teas i.e. halfway between black and green tea. The best quality, which traditionally comes from Formosa (Taiwan), has an attractive amber colour. With their intensely pungent fruity flavour they are something of an acquired taste.

Bramah Japanese Tea
Bramah Japanese Sencha
Japan green teas are the 'white wines' of tea, as different from Congou and Oolong as Sauvignon is from Burgundy. These teas are not meant to infuse in the pot for more than 60 seconds, so they make a perfect alternative to tea bag tea for those needing an instant drink. Now becoming better known outside Japan, this tea currently shows the fastest expansion of any type of green tea in the world. The museum is proud through the Edward Bramah Museum Café, to have an association with Kakagowa the tea growing area of Shishouka, Japan.

Bramah Kenya AA
This is the blend that Edward Bramah perfected during the time that he was working in Africa for Kenya Coffee Auctions Ltd. It has a delightfully nutty and fruity flavour balanced with good body and acidity. Paradoxically this coffee is equally supreme at morning or evening time.

Bramah Ethiopian
This 'antique' blend combines a gamey Mocha coffee from Ethiopia, the original home of coffee, with a creamy Mysore from South India, where Muslim rulers planted coffee as early as 1600. Truly this coffee really does have wine-like character.
