Though India is the world's second largest tea producer, its first luxury tea brand was launched only last year. Harvard-educated arts philanthropist Radhika Chopra named her company No 3 Clive Road after the house in Delhi where her father was born and her comptroller-general grandfather lived. She aims to celebrate the elegance of that age in her range of hand-blended teas and stationery. We particularly like the Maheshwar blend, created for a recent Indian royal wedding: first-flush Darjeeling, cloves, ginger, dried apricots and jasmine. Available at select boutiques in India and online. threecliveroad.com
From luxury tea to smashable Aussie reds and cocktails in tins, these are the biggest trends in drink-land right now.
