Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster
Submit
Aroma
Marked by notes of malt, date palm, yellow raisins along with stone-fruity accents
Appearance
Dark Amber
Taste
A full-bodied, mellow cup which starts with delectable malty flavors which gradually grow big and define the central theme of the liquor.

Subtle sweet undertones, akin to yellow raisins and date palm can be perceived towards the middle; adding a layer of depth and vivacious intensity to the cup.

Delicate woody accents can be picked up towards the end, which however ebb to finish on delightful stone-fruity flavors; making for a memorable cup of Assam orthodox black tea.

Exquisite

Changed my tea routines completely. Even though I am still exploring the inventory and trying new teas. I can already say that TEABOX is surely my tea supplier. Forget about sugar, real tea doesn't need it.

74 years old and now I know what fresh tea tastes like. Easy to order and timely delivery. With so many options I look forward to trying other varieties.

Pleasant and mild

Found this tea to be pleasant and mild. It was mellow and enjoyable. Less showy than some other stronger summer blacks which i tend to prefer, but very nice.
