This tea was a gift to me from a friend who knows the family who owns this estate. It is very much as described. A strong, earthy dark brown tea that is deep and satisfying on its own, with a grassy flavor. It blends well with milk and sweetener without losing its character, and makes a good base for chai – cardamom in particular seems to marry happily with this tea.
This tea is produced in Assam in Eastern India during the peak second flush quality period in June/July. Our produce is grown adjacent to the mighty Brahmaputra River and this tea is best drunk as a "Chai”. The cup has a strong brew which turns golden brown when milk is added. An ideal way to start the day.
