Himalayan Wine Tea

description

A heady high-fired tea, this black tea packs quite a flavor punch and caffeine kick. A strong hit of tobacco and cocoa can be experience throughout the length of the flavor profile of this tea. Its liquor is smooth in texture, robust, full of gusto and topped with high-fired, smoky flavors that finish on a delicately sweet note. The overall experience of this tea is unlike any summer black tea from India but one that’s intoxicating and delicious in its own unique way

I am a lover of Teabox Teas . This was the first time I bought this Himalayan wine tea hoping it would be good. It crossed my expectations with taste and aroma- really a great tea to have anytime.

An eye-opening cup of tea in the morning full of flavour and satisfaction. I love the smokiness of the flavour with the hint of sweetness.

Woody & Smoky

Likes : Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon.

I have ordered this before and it did not seem so smoky, but this time the woody, smoky flavor came through really nicely. It is smooth. I brew all my teas very strongly and I like this a lot. Not bitter. It didn't seem so high caffeine to me. But, I could really taste the tobacco and wood flavors. I did not really taste the cocoa. Maybe I unaware of what the cocoa would be like in a tea..... this is a great afternoon tea. It is a unique treat.

Very smooth

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning.

It was a very unique experience. It was very smooth and rich in flavour, although I felt it was a little weaker than I want my high caffeine teas to be. I couldn't identify tobacco as I've never had it.

This tea is a delight! Deep and smokey without bitterness. Woody aroma and rich liquor and no bitterness at all! It can be easy paired with sweets or cheeses. You won;t make a mistake by ordering it - it is good for everything and everybody.

Normally I buy only samples of tea before making a bigger purchase but I risked it with this one and I'm so pleased I did! Definitely a morning tea, rich and smooth.

Toasty

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon.

This is a really interesting tea. The aroma made me think I would not like it but I do. I would describe the flavour as toasted rather than smokey. It has nice smooth medium body. Slightly sweet with no bitterness. It surprised me!

Delicious smoky flavor

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

Best Served : Anytime.

I love this tea! It is a smooth-bodied, slightly sweet summer flush blend with just a touch of smokiness. The smoky flavor is not as prominent as in, for example, a lapsang tea - just a nice accent to a well-balanced blend. Pairs well with spicy foods or soft cheeses, excellent sipping for any time of day.

BBQ Darjeeling

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Strong.

Best Served : Anytime.

this was our first experience with Teabox. I should have read more carefully the description of the flavor. This Darjeeling comes with a smoked flavor, which is not my favorite, but it is an interesting new experience.
