Jungpana Classic Autumn Black

description

Jungpana is well-known for producing teas from the traditional China jat - leaves plucked from the China tea bush varietals. This autumnal, plucked from organically cultivated tea bushes, boasts an earthy quality that, quite simply, soothes. Beaming with unimposing herbaceous nuances, a cup of this autumnal is full of warm yet green flavors, reprising memories of late summer.

elegant third flush Darjeeling

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

This has the elegant muscatel profile of a traditional high-quality Darjeeling with the addition of the deeper third flush body and resistance to astringency. I don't know the Earl, but I think he would like this one too.

Just perfect!

The quintessential Autumn flush! Spicy (cinnamon, cardamom, cedar, dark chocolate), floral (rose), stone fruit and plum flavours blend in a perfect harmony. Bold, round, and sweet, this tea is a delight from the opening of the pack to the aftertaste. Relaxing and quite light in caffeine (not in flavour), this is tea is not to be missed!

Excellent

This is my favorite black tea from Teabox so far. It has a very fresh taste and it also is a black tea so there is a little bit higher level of caffeine then other types of tea. I like to drink this in the morning as a pick me up. The flavor of the tea is very nice and it is has a superior mouth feel that makes drinking it such a joy.

Bold and round tea.

Best Served : Morning.

It is a bold and round tea, with a spicy and almost smoky aftertaste. Good choice as a morning tea.

After trying every single darjeeling variety offered by Teabox, I have finally finished every last one. Being a fan of the Autumn flushes, Jungpana gives the perfect robust blend they are known for. This is my mainstay, and I highly suggest it to anyone who enjoys tea.
