    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Second flush teas from Assam are known for their distinctive malty flavor. This black tea acquires the same malty traits along with the gorgeous golden tips that make it stand out from the rest. Robust malty flavors interlaced by the delectable notes of brown dates and dried raisins hum throughout the entire duration of the cup. Briefly interrupted by the hints of cocoa, the experience finishes on stone-fruity flavors akin to apricots, making it a sublime cup of summer black tea.
