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.

A well-rounded, brisk and full-bodied cup. Robust flavours of malt and wood are discernible on the first sip. This stays through the length of the cup with sweet notes of dates making an appearance. This is accompanied by some slight tartness in the aftertaste.

This still makes a great cup of tea

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

Updating my review: I have been drinking this as mt preferred morning tea for two years now. It remains my favorite as it 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.

Fantastic for Iced Tea

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

This was the first in a group of samples that I found for a nice Assam Black tea over ice. No sweetener needed here, this tea is malty and has sweet notes. Absolutely love it!

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.
