Darjeeling Special Autumn Chinary Black Tea

description

This blended black tea produces a cup that's fresh and flavorful. The experience of it closely parallels a tree fruit that's close to maturation - crisp and having a bite to it. Ideal for balmy winter days.

taste

The liquor is full bodied, feels ample in the mouth and quite smooth. Notes of sweet greens mingle with an undercurrent of caramel to render a distinct chinary character to the cup. The sweetness prolongs throughout the length of the cup which is balanced by soft undercurrent of floral notes towards the finish. The aftertaste is lingering with tree fruit finish.
