    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Known for producing smaller batches and one of the best organic teas, Lakyrsiew Tea Estate, a hidden gem from Meghalaya, brings an incredible aromatic summer black tea. The brewing experience takes off with the light & refreshing floral notes of amaryllis and honeysuckle accompanied by the light tropical undertones of cantaloupe. A rich and creamy finish to the palate makes it a complex, mellow and brisk cup of black tea.

    taste

    A medium-bodied, mellow and pleasantly brisk cup. Light floral notes; reminiscent of amaryllis and honeysuckle can be perceived right at the start which however gradually subside to reveal a heart resonating with raw, tropical fruity undertones akin to cantaloupe; rendering a distinct character to the liquor. Subtle nutty tinctures shore up around the edges and around the back; which however ebb to finish on lingering sweet, creamy tones; making for a sublime experience.
