Risheehat Classic Summer Black Tea

description

One of the steepest gardens in Darjeeling, Risheehat produces a great summer flush. This season, we have a well-made chinary black tea with sweet and woody notes. It's a tea that connoisseurs will well appreciate.

Nice fruity black tea

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

Described as woody, but I found it to have more of a fruity quality. This is a lovely smooth black tea that tasted delicious without any additions. Perhaps I'll add more leaves next time, as I found it to be a little on the weak side.

Great Aroma and Smooth Texture

Best Served : Morning.

This has a wonderful muscatel aroma and taste. The most remarkable feature of this tea is its texture. It is like velvet. Very enjoyable tea though somewhat expensive.

Best Served : Anytime.

Everyone I have served this tea to has been amazed. They are left smiling. Aromatic richness. Long finish on the palate and left in the cup. Faintly reminiscent of chocolate, ripe berries-about as good as it gets. You could easily live, ridiculously happy with Risheehat as your only source of tea.

Great aroma and texture

Best Served : Anytime.

Got this as a sample. I am always surprised again by the abundance of aroma types of tea, and this is a great example. A herb-fruit combination which really delights, but still with basic 'tea like' qualities to make it full and reviving. Might be a bit too gentle, will try different steep profiles.
