From Upton Tea Imports

Widely consumed in India and used as a popular base tea for masala chai, this tea also works remarkably well as a self drinker. With a bold flavor, rich color and full body, this tea is smooth enough to enjoy plain, but can accommodate milk readily.

Steeping Suggestions: -
Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup
Water Temp: 212° (boiling)
Steep Time: 2-3 min.

Eventho the ‘looks’ of this one prior to infusion reminds me of Rabbit Food – it intrigues me.

It has a rich and dark color once infused. It doesn’t have a distinct aroma but it’s still warm and relaxing for a bolder, darker black tea base.

It’s fairly strong on the tongue. Full body, rich, pretty hearty.

It’s semi-crusty. Yup! A good one to have on hand if you are looking for a straight-Assam.

I was fairly shocked to see only one other Belseri Estate (named) tea here on Steepster in the database – so – heads up to tea companies – a GOODIE to look into and/or include in the title!

It has a neat earthy after taste to it. I think that might be the characteristic I will remember this tea by long after finishing the cuppa.

I’m glad I got a sample of this, it’s very bold and strong with an earthy/woodsy astringency on the finish. I was looking at it on the Upton website says it is a “popular base tea for masala cha” and “can accommodate milk readily” and I can tell that this tea really wants some milk in it but instead of milk I used Lance’s coffee creamer again Bailey’s White Silk & Spice, It was super good, It tasted like a vanilla chai to me.
