    KNOW YOUR TEA

    A heady high-fired tea, this black tea packs quite a flavor punch and caffeine kick. A strong hit of tobacco and cocoa can be experience throughout the length of the flavor profile of this tea. Its liquor is smooth in texture, robust, full of gusto and topped with high-fired, smoky flavors that finish on a delicately sweet note. The overall experience of this tea is unlike any summer black tea from India but one that’s intoxicating and delicious in its own unique way
