Jungpana Classic Autumn Black Tea

description

While this is a complex and a multi-layered tea, it's easy to enjoy. There is restraint, and a calming quality that makes it the choice of tea to relax with. The flavors infuse into each other and the resulting chemistry, however complex, is incredibly delicious.

The liquor is exceptionally well-balanced, well-rounded and velvety. Notes of waxy red flowers, like amaryllis, and wet wood dominate the middle, intense for most parts. Hints of unripe watermelon come through towards the end and linger in the finish.

Great tea for rainy days

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning.

Imagine yourself at home with a nice hot cup of tea when it is cold and raining outside: this is why Jungpana Autumn is for! Woody and smooth, it is not the most complex tea, but it will make you feel good. My personal taste: with a chocolat square.

Outstanding, rich and complex

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning.

Beautiful example of an Autumn flush Darjeeling. I like to brew this Gong Fu style, with multiple short steeps (about 30 seconds each) to bring out the different layers of flavour. On the first brew there's a prominent chocolate aroma, with a sweet floral note that reminds me of carnations. Second brew brings a mouth-filling blast of finely textured tannins, along with some earthiness. On the third and subsequent brews there's a hint of wintergreen, and a fruitiness like dried strawberries. Very complex!

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.

Excellent

Best Served : Anytime.

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.

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.

Bold and round tea.

Likes : Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning.

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

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!
