Royal Flush is brewed from First Flush Darjeeling, known in India as the Queen of Teas. The first two tips of the tea plant, picked as they emerge in the first bloom of spring, are dried carefully to tease out a character closer to a delicate white tea.
The Perfect Serve
This kombucha brews with rich notes of rhubarb and gooseberry on the nose, rounding out to white fruits and even a touch of black currant. A delicate floral acidity with a relatively short finish makes Royal Flush quite fresh and bright. Ideal as a celebration drink in place of a champagne, serve in a white wine glass or champagne flute.
Royal Flush pairs well with white meats, white fish and umami-rich cream sauces. It also works well as an aperitif, with charcuterie, in place of sauterne with foie gras or desert wines with pudding.
Big flavours can overpower the delicate subtleties of Royal Flush, so many of the mixologists they work with use it for a Kir or a Bellini.
