Summer flush Assam tea are typically strong and brisk and are preferred so. But we have chosen for our Chai Brew, a specific summer black tea for those who prefer a lighter Assam tea that makes a good character with its earthy flavours.
Its mystique is around its clean and smooth flavour. Neither too heavy nor too light, it’s right in the middle with genteel rolling of spiciness in the background. This tea can be consumed with or without milk and with or without sweetener and still gives you a bold character without any briskness to it and leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
|Aroma||Soft notes of fresh green leaves, molasses and hints of spices.||Hints of maple syrup, herbs, cardamom.||Gentle aroma of mellow spice and sweetness of maple|
|Appearance||Tightly rolled black leaves, some with brown hues and broken spices.||Dark Amber.||Dark beige.|
|Taste||The amber liquor is clean and medium-bodied. Notes of earth and wood stretch through the cup. Gentle sweetness of maple syrup as undernotes and with distant note of herbs and spice. Tannins are sharp at the tip of the tongue but mellow once swallowed leaving a fresh and clean finish.||The addition of milk erases any hints of grassy feel. The well-balanced spices, tea and milk play a game of earth, water and air to take your taste buds on a tender ride of tasteful sensations. The symphony of cinnamon, cardamom and liquorice rolls gently at the back of the palate. These taste sensations leave you uplifted with a clean and crisp finish.|
|Compliments||Ideal with buttered toast, pancake, banana bread, tea cake, jam and scones, dips and crackers, samosas.|
