Brew Sip goes long way to bring a perfect blend of tea for you. Our tea is selected and tested by our expert tea tasters to ensure high
quality is achieved. Our tea is tested for its content in laboratories in UK. We then package our products in UK and trade through
reputed merchants. We work closely with the tea gardens to gain deep understanding of the characteristics of the tea. We partner with our supply chain as One Team to deliver the best product for our customers.
Here is our journey from garden to the cup or Plucking to Production.
Step 1: Plucking
The top ‘two leaves and bud’ are carefully plucked.
Step 2: Withering & Rolling
Once leaves are collected, spread over a long tray and dried with hot air. The leaves will turn supple after withering which prevents it from breaking into flakes when under the action of a CTC/orthodox machine. Some biochemical changes including the reduction of moisture content occur in the leaves during withering which influences the characteristics of tea. The rolling process then breaks the veins of the leaves, releasing the juices (catechins and enzymes) essential to begin fermentation.
Step 3: Fermentation & Firing
Once the leaves have been ‘processed’ they are placed in a cool, airy and humid room to ferment. Leafs are also dried in an oven stops fermentation if required. The leaves are dried to a required moisture content to prevent a musty taste.
Step 4: Grading
Leaves will be graded into differing sizes and categories before final bulk tea packaging.
Step 5: Bulk Packaging
Processed tea is packed in air tight sacks of 15-22kg each. These sacks are then palleted and further packed to the transport requirement of our logistic partner.
Step 6: Transport to UK
We transport the bulk tea sacks/pallets through our professional logistic partners. Extra cares are taken so that the original aromas of the different teas are maintained through the transport.
Step 7: Testing
We carry out micro-biology test and nutritional tests of the imported tea in UK. These are carried out to confirm a) no presence of microorganisms/moulds etc. and b) the nutrient content of the tea.
Step 8: Tea Bagging and Boxing
The bulk loose tea is then tea bagged and packaged in a professional way UK. This takes place through an automated technology process and in a high controlled environment.
Step 9: To the Cup
Our recommendation to our customers.
• Use boil water and pour into a regular pot or cup
• Put the tea bag in the bottom of the cup. …
• Add hot water upto 3/4th cup. …
• Let the tea steep for 3-4 minutes (for Breakfast Tea and Assam Tea) or 4-5 minutes (for Darjeeling tea and green tea)
• Add milk and/or sugar to taste. We recommend Darjeeling and Green tea are best without milk.
• Enjoy the taste of the best tea.
