Chamraj Classic Winter Frost Black Tea

description

This tea captures winter flush perfectly. Its make is classic Nilgiri fully oxidized leaves with lots of green leaf flakes - and so are its flavors intense, leafy, and floral. We think it's an ideal choice for those who prefer to start their day with a plain but flavorful tea.

Sweet and fruity!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

I love this tea for so many reasons. It is quite dark, strong and fruity, but with a good amount of sweetness. When brewed, the liquor looks like a dark assam, and it has a similar sweetness but a lot more fruit notes. Very enjoyable as it is, without needing milk or sugar.

Berry Cream with Lingering Spinach

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

This tea smells amazing. It has a creamy aroma with a hint of wild berries. Full palate with a note of fresh spinach that tapers off into a very mild acidic finish. The spinach-like note lingers on the palate, which I didn't really like.

Light Frost Black Tea

Likes : High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Afternoon.

This is my first frost tea, and I was surprised at how light and mild it is. The flavor profile is definitely there, it just left me wanting a little more. I found this more vegetal than citrusy. Very weak if under-steeped.

Sweet and Cool

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon, Evening.

This is the first frost tea I've had and I find it delightful. Be aware that this tea drinks more like an oolong than a black tea - it's mild and subtle. It's very light for a black tea, excellent for afternoon, early evening or accompanying a meal. I found the flavor to be primarily vegetal, with a frosty cool menthol finish that lingers on the palate long after the last sip.

Sweet and Green

Likes : Great Aroma.

Best Served : Anytime.

This tea was quite sweet and mild. The aroma was pleasantly floral. There was a sweet berry flavour with a touch of green and the finish had a slight astringency with dryness at the very end. Quite pleasant.

Minimal flavor

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : No Flavor, Weak, Bitter if Over-Steeped.

This tea is listed as a "medium caffeine" tea, and to me it seemed partway between green and black. It was fresh, but the flavor was lacking. What flavor was there was good, but it needed more? But it gets bitter if over-steeped, so it was hard to get the flavor I was looking for.

Fantastic Tea!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning, Afternoon, Evening.

This tea is subtle when sipped, and then it explodes into an amazing array of flavors, the best of which is a citrus-like aftertaste very reminiscent of Cara-Cara oranges. It can be bitter if oversteeped, and it can be underwhelming if understeeped, so do be mindful of timing when preparing this tea.
