Chota Tingrai Special Summer Black Tea

description

An estate known for their organic practices, and their innovations and progressive practices, we have come to expect a certain finesse to Chota Tingrai’s teas. This summer black has more golden tips, rendering a cup that’s malty, a bit astringent and yet creamy and robust.
