Chubwa Classic Summer Black Tea

description

There's a lot to love about this tippy black tea. It comes from the oldest estate in Assam that has a long-standing reputation for producing some of the best orthodox loose-leaf black teas. It's tipped with flavors that are sweet, fruity, and just sharp enough. Perfect for a refreshing sip in the morning.

Robust, strong summer Assam

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

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

Chubwa Summer black makes for a solid, broad earthy Assam. It accommodates milk well and is sufficiently strong to be taken with breakfast and tasty enough to drink through the day.

Very solid morning tea. Smooth, well balanced, slightly sweet, light yet caffeinated, with a hint of caramel.

This tea has a light sweetness to it that is just wonderful. A bold, yet sweet Assam that is a simply wonderful start to the day.

A warming and rich cup of tea

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

Dislikes : Strong.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

This is a robust tea with big, round flavors of honey and date. If you like strong tea that is not bitter and you like the classic caramelly secondary note of an Assam, this tea delivers both.
