description

A mellow black tea from the mist covered hills of Sonada makes for an impressive Darjeeling. This season’s offering from Oaks estate is an arresting light gold liquored chinary. Like most seed-grown chinary teas of the season, it tastes ‘green’ but feels softer, earthier, and gentler on the palate. Perfect for people who enjoy light teas.

aroma:
Lifted notes of unripe tree fruit, wet wood, green undertones and some spicy hints
appearance:
Light gold
taste:
A medium bodied cup, smooth and slightly brisk in taste. A distinct raw note, similar to unripe tree fruit can be perceived immediately which gradually grows big as you make your way into the cup; followed by subtle undertones of forest greens and fennel seed which comes around at the edges and lingers on to give the cup a rounded character.
COMPLEMENTS:
Fritters, cheese-based salads, mushroom, legumes, tropical fruit
