Kinnettles Gold is a unique, Scottish grown single estate tea. This distinctly flavoured tea is grown and hand-rolled on Kinnettles Farm in Angus by Susie Walker-Munro. It has been produced since 2015 in batches of less than 2kg per year.
Only 1.5kg of the tea was produced in 2017, which were exclusively available from PekoeTea in limited-edition 20g tins and 5g samples.
Kinnettles Gold tea has been processed using secret techniques, specially-developed for the Scottish climate with the help of tea consultant Beverly-Claire Wainwright, who has worked on producing the exquisite teas from Amba estate in Sri Lanka. Beverly’s philosophy is to match processing methods to suit the terroir, rather than copying methods from other countries.
As Scotland’s terroir is unique, Beverly and Susie have created unique processing methods to ensure the tea lives up to its full taste potential.
True to its name, the hand-rolled, golden tipped leaves infuse to a rich golden liquor.
