From Rare Tea Company

This fragrant black tea comes from the tiny LaKyrsiew farm in this forgotten forest region of India

From high in the cloudy hills it is a rare and unique tea.

Meghalaya lies between Assam and Darjeeling and this tea really has the best of both. Light and floral it also enjoys rich caramel and malty notes.

Oh this is lovely. So very lovely!

I’ve had this tin of tea for a little while now (I got this and the RAF tea at the same time), but I wanted to save it for a little while. I knew I was going to love it, and that certainty was based only on the fact that I really loved the RAF tea and I then set my expectations very high for any other tea that I might try from them. I tend to do that… if I notice something exceptional about a tea from a company that I’ve not tried before, I then expect the exceptional from them… it sometimes leaves me vulnerable to disappointment … fortunately, it did not this time.

Something about the name of this tea suggested to me to steep it at a lower temperature … it sounded like a Darjeeling (even though it didn’t quite look like one) and since I typically steep my Darjeeling teas at a lower temperature, I did so with this as well. After tasting this, I am confident I did the right thing by this tea… because I can’t imagine it tasting any better… It’s really so good. Sweet! Light, crisp, uplifting. It has a delicious fruity quality that reminds me of Darjeeling, even a hint of muscatel is noted. But it doesn’t have the sharp astringency of some Darjeeling teas, this is smooth from start to finish, with only a slight tangy note toward the end … almost like it’s trying to mimic astringency but not quite getting there (if that makes sense)… I guess I’m trying to say that it is a very slight astringency. The aftertaste is sweet and citrus-y.

This is FANTASTIC!
