Taste
A classic Darjeeling summer cup from this small, family-owned tea estate in Kurseong valley. With its bold and robust character, this tea immediately enthralls the palate with a satisfying astringent taste. Transitioning into a smooth and well-balanced cup, it creates a delightful sense of fullness.

Starting with a noticeable nutty and woody essence, this distinct flavor gradually takes center stage as you savor each sip. Delicate notes of cocoa emerge, accompanied by subtle undertones reminiscent of apricot, lending a deeper and livelier character to the brew. As you relish the tea, a light nutty touch lingers, leaving behind a memorable Chinary experience that will stay with you even after the last sip.

Highly recommended

I have been it love for many years but like almost South Indians I had mil Kitty. I had the box had introduced me to the potentially the right way of making tea by Britain water without burning it and then adding test dollop of milk whenever you order and duty is there is always in an over excitement around that will turn out good the or whether you like it or not I think when I ordered the give the bahar Chennai black I will happen MI tradition but the moment I breathe it and I tasted it it had just the right consistency and and the substance to make for beautiful cup in the evening
Highly recommended

Loved the experience

I have so enjoyed buying and consuming tea fromTeabox. I mean, let’s keep aside the actual love for the tea (which is so flavoursome that spring immediately blossoms in the brain as the tea sips into the system), but the act of purchasing is in itself very gratifying. The flavours and descriptions of teas, the neat packing, extra empties, notes written upfront, a couple of extras on the side - it’s the way tea should be served. As for the tea - fresh, flowery and gorgeous is all I can say. I love having a plain cup in the morning and then I add a few sprigs to the slightly milky Assam ( I know that’s blasphemy but I’m a non believer who prefers a little jazz).
