Discover the Delights of Saicho Sparkling Tea: A Journey of Flavours

At Heather & Bale, we take great pride in curating the finest luxury hampers and gifts that offer an exclusive experience. Today, we want to introduce you to one of our featured producers, Saicho. This remarkable brand, founded by Charlie and Natalie, is on a mission to bring the world of sparkling tea to the drinks receptions and dining tables of the world. Join us as we delve into the fascinating story behind Saicho and explore the delights of their Sparkling Jasmine Tea.

Unveiling Saicho’s Passion for Tea:

Saicho’s story begins with Charlie and Natalie, a husband and wife team driven by their shared passion for food and drink. Natalie’s inability to consume alcohol left her longing for the same complex and heritage-infused experience that wine offers. Inspired by her fondness for tea, the couple embarked on a meticulous two-year journey of sampling and experimentation. Their goal? To create a non-alcoholic beverage with the same depth and variety as wine. And thus, Saicho was born.

The Art of Cold Brewing:

Saicho’s commitment to quality and flavour shines through in their unique approach to tea brewing. The team understands that the cold brewing process enhances the tea’s delicate aromatics and creates a more complex flavour profile. Through careful selection of single origin tea, with attention to, harvest times, altitude, and processing methods, Saicho ensures each tea boasts its own distinct personality. The result is a range of sparkling teas that captivate the senses and elevate any dining experience.

The Journey of Saicho:

Saicho’s name pays homage to the historical figure who introduced tea to Japan. Their mission is to spread the joy of sparkling tea far and wide. Like Saicho himself, Charlie and Natalie have brought something extraordinary to the world. From planting the first tea seeds to the widespread popularity of tea in Japan, Saicho encapsulates the spirit of exploration and appreciation for fine flavours.
