This is another single sourced tea from The Simple Leaf. This one is from Arunchal Pradesh in India, which is high in the mountains north of Assam and west of Bhutan along the Chinese Indian border. One of the nice things about these single sourced teas is that they are kind of an adventure in a cup. I fantasize about the beauty of these mountainous areas as I sip.
This tea has beautiful, large twisted leaves that smell of chocolate and raisins. It brews into a golden red liquor with scents of chocolate, toast, slight note of malt and the sweetness of tea. It has a very light mild flavor with chocolate notes. It is quite good.
