Everything you touch is gold
Meet Golden Hour: Amber in color and fragrance, this is the first time a delicately smoked premium TFGOP grade black tea from Assam, India meets an antioxidant-packed, creamy oolong tea from Fujian, China. An extraordinarily rare, luxury blend inspired by the great tea cultures of India and China, this warming tea will perfume your daily steeping ritual with the luxurious fragrance of night-blooming jasmine and cardamom.
Delight in its symphony of ripe figs, dates, and candied pieces of caramel. Sip and be transported behind the ancient palace walls that inspired our founder to create this blend. Brew anytime of day. Currently only available in our Four Seasons Sampler pack, with more sizes forthcoming.
April 22, 2021 marks the first anniversary of our founding. We're honored by your love and loyal support of The Silk Tea Co. To pay it forward, we're honoring the origins of all the world's tea: Asia. We're donating 10% of profits from our Four Seasons Sampler pack sales for the entire month of April to #StopAsianHate.
As a small business founded in New York City by a former U.S. diplomat who's a first generation, Vietnamese-American woman, we stand in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community during this time as well as with our BIPOC brothers and sisters and allies.
Our founder will personally match the funds donated from your purchases and will donate to the following non-profit organizations: AAPI Women Lead, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, and Heart of Dinner — which fights food insecurity and isolation experienced by Asian American elders in NYC by delivering delicious and nourishing meals to them.
And, as always, 5% of each purchase goes to fund the elimination of violence against women via the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women.
The Silk Tea Brewing Ritual
Scoop one spoonful (3 grams) into your tea filter of choice. Boil water to 175ºF-180ºF / 80-85ºC and gently pour over the tea. Steep for 4 minutes before enjoying. Enrich this blend with the addition of sugar or honey and a splash of your milk of choice. Go on and pour yourself and your beloved another cup. This tea is good for re-steeping and will unfurl different flavors over 2-3 refill pours of freshly boiled water. Each spoonful of our whole leaf tea blend can yield 2-3 cups of delicious tea.
Golden Hour features a delicately smoked Assam black tea (TGFOP), milky oolong tea, cardamom, dates, figs, cream caramel, roses, cornflowers, safflowers, flavors and jasmine flowers. Exclusively blended in Europe with premium ingredients from around the world. Founded and packed in the USA.
