    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Established in 1869, the Seeyok Tea Estate in Darjeeling is one of the most reputed tea gardens in the world. Apart from being organic, Seeyok is one of the few estates that exercises bio-dynamic practices and plans the harvest according to the lunar calendar. This tea plucked on auspicious strawberry moon night, an event that comes once a year, makes the tea leaf even more succulent. Picked by expert pluckers from a designated section of the garden situated at 5500 feet, this tea is made exclusively for Teabox. We have procured this limited edition tea fresh from Seeyok. As you begin sipping, notes of Muscat grapes and Mirabelle plums arrive on the palate and stay for the entire duration. Notes of cedar and chestnuts ebb towards the middle with delicious accents of black currants in the aftertaste. The second steep emanates the vibrant texture of sweet grapes. An unforgettable cup of second flush 2021, a true connoisseurs' experience!

    taste

    A medium-bodied, lively cup which beams with luscious fruity attributes. It starts out with a pronounced note of Muscat grapes interlaced with exquisite flavors of Mirabelle plum which envelop the palate and gradually grow big towards the middle. These flavors hum along throughout the length of the cup; complemented by delicate notes of cedar and chestnuts; adding more variety to a superlative Muscatel experience. Delectable tones of black currants can be picked up in the aftertaste. The second steep at 4 mins brings forth invigorating accents of clementine zest joined with sweet-grapey textures.
