Chota Tingrai Special Summer Black Tea

description

An estate known for their organic practices, and their innovations and progressive practices, we have come to expect a certain finesse to Chota Tingrai’s teas. This summer black has more golden tips, rendering a cup that’s malty, a bit astringent and yet creamy and robust.

Superb, sweet summer Assam perfection

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon, Dessert Tea.

This is the sweetest, smoothest summer Assam tea available here. Its perfectly balanced between maltiness and sweetness with a flawless smooth texture. Unlike any other Assam- certainly a 5* treat!

New Favorite

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

This is my new favorite to linger over while I check emails in the morning. Takes milk and sweetener well but doesn't need a lot of additional sweetness as the honey tones are predominant in this tea. Full-bodied but delicate. Delightful!

Used as a base for Iced Teas

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Evening.

This was recommended by Teabox Experts when we were looking out for Iced tea base. And their recommendation met our expectations, infact it's the best. Totally recommend it as it has the smooth body and nutty, earthern aroma doesn't over power the condiments. Would definitely order for this summer too. The best part is the freshness.
