‘Sublime House of Tea’, started in 2013 by Uzma Irfan - Executive Director, Prestige Group and Founder, Sublime Galleria, is engaged in a perennial voyage to discover newer and better experiences of imbibing the divine brew of gourmet tea, while always staying in touch with its traditions and roots that date back to ancient times. ‘Sublime House of Tea’ is promoted by the Prestige Group and Sublime Galleria.
Handpicked with care to value quality and diversity rather than quantity, Sublime’s portfolio of fine tea presents a mix of the classical, the popular and the avant-garde. From sought after bouquets such as Green Tea, Assam Tea and English Breakfast to intriguing localised brews like Moroccan Mint, and Seventh Heaven, eclectic admixtures like White Tea with Raspberry and the complex flavours of herbal tisanes like Rose in Bloom and Chamomile, there is tea to suit every palate and occasion.
‘Sublime House of Tea’ has been credited with introducing certain flavours to the Indian market that were hitherto unavailable here, including exotic brews like Seventh Heaven, Wellness Brew and Green Long Ding, which are extremely sought-after in several places across the globe. Another differentiator is that the tea is packed in pyramid tea bags, rather than the regular filter paper tea bags, thus further enhancing the taste of the tea by giving the fullness of the liquor.
Ever since it was first drunk, millennia ago, tea has been known for its beneficial effects on the human health. The ancient Chinese believed it to be useful in the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions. In modern times, studies show that tea, especially the white and green varieties, are rich in catechins. Catechins are a variety of antioxidants that help to counter the harmful effects of free radical cells in our body and lower cholesterol levels. Drinking tea thus can potentially be beneficial in preventing diseases like cancer, neurological conditions and coronary heart diseases. Studies are being conducted the world over to determine the exact nature and extent of the benefits.
