TASTING NOTES

Aroma

Aromatic, evocative of fuchsia peonies, white orchids, muskmelon with a hint of greens

Appearance

Light Gold

Taste

A light-bodied, impressively smooth, mellow cup tipped with radiant floral attributes. The palate is filled with an aromatic suppleness, redolent of fuchsia peonies and white orchids which gradually grows into prominence and reverberates throughout. Luscious fruity tones, redolent of muskmelon interlaced with a hint of spring-greens shore up around the edges and towards the back; adding greater depth and buoyant character to the liquor. Rejuvenating citrusy accents come through in the aftertaste, making for a distinguished experience. Thes second steep is just as flavorful, beaming with luscious tones of raw mango and is best served iced for a memorable experience.

YOU ASKED.

WE ANSWERED

There are different varieties of teas available such as Black Teas, Green Teas, White Teas, Oolong Teas, Chai, Tisanes & Flavored Blends.
Our teas are fresh because we buy the first pick of every season and take utmost care of the same once it reaches our facility. Tea has 4 enemies - Light, moisture, oxygen and heat. In our dehumidified facility we ensure they are packed and stored well. The dehumidifier helps to keep the moisture levels intact and also helps keep the optimum temperature in place. The teas are then immediately bulk vacuum packed to keep the moisture and oxygen at bay. This unique process ensures our teas fresh as the day they were processed at the estates.
Freshness matters because tea is an agricultural product and also hygroscopic in nature. Which means, if the teas travel through warehouses and different temperatures it loses its inherent flavor and health properties. Fresh tea tastes better and is healthier.
We procure teas directly from different Indian tea estates. We have stringent quality parameters in place to ensure we procure only the finest high grade premium teas from these gardens.
Tea leaves are known to remain fresh when stored under controlled atmospheric conditions. All our single estate teas can be consumed before 24 months. This may vary depending on the tea, please refer to your packaging for the same.
As explained in the previous question, its our unique processing and storage that helps us to keep the teas in the optimal condition. So, no matter what the date of picking is, the tea when vacuum packed and kept in dehumidifiers will retain their freshness.
Our chais and blends are made in small batches to ensure that the tea remains fresh and not stored for months before it reaches you.
Each tea and tea type have their own steeping instructions. Please refer to the individual tea’s steeping instructions. Our team ensures that you get the right water temperature, steeping tme and the no. of steeps in each tea for a better tea experience. You could also refer to our Steeping page for more details.
Black teas are the most oxidized(aged) of all tea types. They undergo every step of tea processing from plucking, withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying. For fresh black teas, oxidation is a significant step as this is where the flavour of the teas is built. Consequently, black teas possess a stronger flavour profile than white, green, or oolong teas. Loose leaf black teas can be made in an orthodox way or by using mechanized techniques (CTC). Like all teas, there are many black tea benefits which makes it a healthy alternative to high-caffeine beverages.
Like almost all other teas, the white tea leaves come from the same Camellia sinensis plant. The name ‘white tea’ comes from the fine, silvery‐white hairs that cover the unopened buds of the plant. However, when steeped, the liquid tea is not white or transparent but rather a pale, light yellow. Although there exists no consensus on how white tea should be processed, there are two commonly accepted methods. The first involves minimal processing, where the loose leaves are withered for a long time before they are dried, and in the second, the loose leaves are first steamed or fired in order to deactivate polyphenol oxidase, and then dried.
Fresh white teas are an antioxidant powerhouse. Antioxidants are the body’s protective agents against free radicals, chronic disease, and inflammation. Since they have high antioxidant value, which makes it an excellent ally for natural weight loss.
Oolongs teas are made from the leaves of Camellia sinensis. What sets it apart from the blacks or whites or greens is the single step of oxidation. Oolongs fits between black and green teas by being partially oxidized. Its leaves are usually formed in one of two unique styles: rolling them long and curly or ‘wrap‐ curling’ the leaves into small bead‐like shapes, sometimes with a tail.
Drinking tea can do wonders for your health and Oolong tea is no exception. This impressively healthy zero-calorie drink is a start to your weight loss program. Organic oolong tea is packed with alkaloids, including caffeine that can boost your mental and physical well-being, increase serotonin production, and counter free radicals. One smart way of burning calories is the regular consumption of oolong teas.

Pathetic quality control from teabox, tea has lost all its flavor

This is a follow up to my review of the same tea - my review published on 10 May 2021.

Based on my positive experience of May 2021, I placed purchased additional quantity of this tea in Aug 2021. To my shock, I was totally unhappy with the taste of the tea. It had lost all its flavor in the intervening period. This is not the first time this has happened. Gardens from Darjeeling are sometimes unable to produce teas that keep their flavors intact for say 6 months.

All this while, I have taken great care to store this tea in its original packing, in airtight metal containers, far away from both moisture and light. My purchases of MH of previous batches (2017 and before) used to last much much longer, right upto the month of December (for that year). I do not know if this is due to vagaries of nature or the garden's inability to produce top quality white teas. There have been a series of disappointments in the last 3 years.

It also means, I can enjoy my FF White teas ONLY during a brief window of say 2 months, immediately after harvesting. This is tragic. Because teas from other countries (China, Sri Lanka) seem to retain their flavors much longer.

I requested Teabox for a refund but they have declined. Despite being a long time premium customer of theirs since last 10 years. I feel that the quality control of Teabox has become poor these last 2 - 3 years. They have sacrificed quality at the altar of quick profits and greed. Terrible!

Always consistent and always brilliant

This tea never fails me. It's aroma and palate are simply fantastic. I get three to four steeps, each one bringing out subtle but distinct touch of geranium and Lily. It is ever so gentle and superbly smooth. Fantastic for any time of the day. But it like it late afternoon or evenings.
