description

This rare tea from Assam has ample golden tips that brim with flavors fresh and exciting. Made using a novel method, the plants of this estate are grown very close to each other unlike the usual plantations. This gives the tea character and quality quite unique from all the other Assams. The cup is fragrant and its malty flavor is complemented by sweet notes of dates. Then the subtle but uplifting vanilla and apricot makes the cup vibrant as the liquor finishes perfectly with fresh hints of gardenia.

aroma:
Lifted notes of malt, brown dates, maple syrup with undercurrents of vanilla and dried drupes
appearance:
Light Amber
taste:
The liquor is medium-bodied, brisk and renders a mellow feel to the palate. Robust, malty flavors interlaced with delicious notes of dates greet the palate and gradually grow into prominence. Muted notes of vanilla and dried apricot hum along in the background, adding a layer of vibrancy which rounds up the cup beautifully. The finish, persistent and fresh, evocative of gardenia renders an exquisite feel.
