Nothing gets more Brit than the concept of high-tea. A lavish spread of exquisite tea blends served with some sweet and savoury accompaniments including a scone is what a typical high-tea in England looks like. Whether you favour a classic breakfast blend or love to try fruity and herbal teas, most of us are quite serious about our daily brews. As the cold winter chill seeps through your skin, all you need is a warm cup of tea to keep you cosy. Everyone has a preference but there are many great Indian tea blends out there that deserve to be tried and appreciated.

India is the second-largest producer of teas in the world, and ‘Tea’ is at the centre of the nation’s cultural ethos. Darjeeling tea from India is celebrated around the world. Assam tea and Nilgiri tea are popular choices, but newer tea growing regions are emerging in India. With a vast flavour profile and multiple native ingredients that India has to offer, making custom artisanal blends caters to the trend. "Many believe that combining the most expensive spices and botanicals together will make for a good tea blend, but that’s a myth. Tea blending is an art of precision with nuances like a balance of flavours and what health benefits complement each other - rather than using the most expensive ingredients,” shared Snigdha Manchanda, Founder The Tea Trunk.

Apart from tea, India has a rich heritage of botanicals such as flowers, herbs and spices that are unique and infusing them with different base teas result in teas that are both healthy and delicious. Here are some Indian tea blends that all tea lovers must try.

Marigold Tea

Marigold, belonging to the Calendula family, holds an iconic status in the context of Indian cultures.
