Tasting Notes A stellar blend of well-rolled blackish-brown leaves mixed with brown leaf flakes that come alive with bright flavors of dried stone fruit and firewood. The infusion carries top notes of dark chocolate and wood, with toasted cashews in the release. The liquor is well rounded, medium-bodied, and soft textured. It carries burnt wood in the attack followed by notes of plum, dried cherry, and hints of toasted nuts. The liquor starts out clean but turns big in the middle. Here, notes of burnt wood and dried stone fruit emerge and linger for a while, before finishing gently on a soft, creamy note.

    We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea 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 your teas packed?
    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. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centres located in various parts of the world.
