Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster
Submit
Aroma
Lifted notes of malt, date palm and yellow raisins.
Appearance
Amber
Taste
A medium-bodied, mellow cup with a sweet-malty aroma which immediately awakens your taste buds. As you continue to sip, you'll notice luscious flavors of date palm blending harmoniously with subtle notes of cocoa, adding a lively and enjoyable intensity to the liquor.

The tea has an underlying pleasant smoothness that balances out any slight astringency discernible along the edges. Towards the end, you'll notice sweet hints of yellow raisins that linger on, making it a memorable experience of Assam black tea this summer.

Nice flavor and body

Not as good as it used to be

Teabox's Halmari has been lackluster over the past couple of years. The quality isn't what it used to be. Tends to be bitter with little hint of malt.
