I’m excited to try this tea. The dry leaves are a lovely chocolate brown color with many golden tips, and they emit a hickory smoke/earthy scent. I wonder if it will taste as it smells.

Just like the Rohini Estate, I’m left with a myriad of downy hairs floating on the surface of the green-gold liquor. The brew has a subtle sweet scent, with a tad of that smokiness still hinted at in the steam. Initial sips give off a vegetal, yet robust dark flavor. A tad bit of astringency accompanies the taste, but just like the Namring Estate, it’s not enough to make it bitter. So far no hints of the woodsmoke in the mix. Hints of flora. All in all, quite a good cuppa tea.
