    KNOW YOUR TEA

    The sweet, smooth, fruity, and floral aromas of the autumn flush are always in complete harmony. This pure blend of fresh Darjeeling autumn teas is a balanced cup of tea. When you start sipping, sweet flavors of candied orange greet the palate with a hint of muskmelon that flows throughout the entire duration of the cup. Light floral hints also begin to appear that adds a rounded character to the cup. The aftertaste of red berries lingers on.

    A light-bodied, lively cup which beams with radiant characters right from the start. The liquor opens with a delicious burst of candied orange slices interlaced with subtle sweetness of muskmelon; defining the taste profile of the liquor. These flavors reverberate throughout, complemented by light floral hints around the edges - adding a rich, rounded character to the cup. Subtle nutty flavors can be perceived towards the end, which however subside to reveal citrusy-sweet flavors akin to red berries which lingers on; making for a superlative Autumnal oolong from Darjeeling.
