Havukal Special Winter Frost Black Tea

description

One of the distinct qualities of teas from Havukal is that they are incredibly aromatic. This time as well, there are no surprises. It’s one of the most flavorful pick of the season, full of  fragrant, sweet, floral aromas. Complex yet easy – this is a tea which is perfect for all day sipping. Nilgiri Winter Frost specialty teas hold richer flavors particularly because of subdued growth of leaves and buds during the cold months of winter.
