Good afternoon tea, bold and malty with a good astringency. Creamy smooth with a little milk and sweetener :-) I’ve been craving strong bold black teas the past few days for some reason.
From the Putharjhora Estate in India, near Assam, this offering has a fresh aroma and pleasing, lingering pungency. The amber liquor has a malty nuance with a refreshing minty note.
Dooars, like Assam, is located at a low elevation, and as a result, the tea grown in this district is full-bodied and brisk. Nicely accentuated with a hint of milk or sugar, Dooars teas are great in the morning or afternoon.
This fine tea illustrates why teas from the Dooars district have been increasing in popularity as self-drinkers.
