    Established in the 1900s, the Oaks Tea Estate is located in Sonada - a small town midway between Kurseong and Darjeeling. The estate is USDA certified organic and grows chinary bushes that are more than 100 years old. We have procured this Indian single estate summer tea, fresh from the misty hills at 4500 ft. As soon as you sip, vibrant fruity attributes arrive with sweet notes of nectarines and stay on the palate till the end of the cup. Hints of oaks and chestnuts can be perceived in the middle while the taste of dried berries lingers on in the aftertaste. A memorable cup of Summer flush 2021!
