At Storm, a small family business established in 2010, the business was built on four simple pillars: amazing flavours, consideration for tea farmers and their staff, care for the planet and care for our general wellbeing.
The flavour revolution has happened with beer and coffee and now the team at Storm are on a mission to shake up the tea industry in the same way....a Storm is Brewing!
What Storm have to say about their Harrington Estate Organic Earl Grey Tea:
Our Earl Grey is comprised of natural oil of bergamot that has been gently infused into black organic orange pekoe tea leaves from the Harington Estate. The estate is located in the Dimbula region of the Central Mountain range of Sri Lanka. Harrington has been producing organic teas since 2011. The owners wanted to protect the land and remove the need for artificial fertilisers and pesticides. This has allowed animals of many species to be seen around the estate including wild boar, wildcats, deer, squirrels, eagles and many other birds. There has also been a noticeable increase in the bee populations throughout the estate.
The tea estate, which was established in the days of the British Empire, is spread over 40 hectares of land so is relatively small and stands at 1,200 metres above sea level. The owners have opted to produce only black tea which is in high demand due to its excellent flavour and organic status.
This classic English tea is balanced beautifully with the brisk notes of the Ceylon tea complimenting the perfumed and citrus nuances of the oils of Bergamot.
