Tasting Notes
Appearance - Dark-tan and coppery, with noticeable tips - stylish and well-made
Aroma - Toasty and sweet, with an almost caramel and honeysuckle hue and subtle woody notes
Taste - Bright and deep amber, there is a distinctly rich vibrancy in the cup that is matched with a good-body and sweet astringency on the palate, with amazingly clear notes of ripened tropical fruits at the edges, tapering off with lovely and lingerting tones of muscatel grapes.

Where are your Teas from?

We source our teas from over 150 renowned plantations and small individual farms in India. Within the country, we procure from 5 popular tea-producing regions, namely: Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kangra, and Sikkim.

How are the Teas packaged?

After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Post 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. these are vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminum-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Further, required quantities are packed in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.
