    KNOW YOUR TEA

    The flavors of a Lopchu are appreciated far and wide and produced quite consistently in this part of Darjeeling. The earthy aroma of this liquor has hints of raw fruits and red berries. And the sweetness of the earthy flavor is underlined by faint notes of burnt wood giving the liquor an exotic quality incomparable to any. The typical smokiness never leaves the cup making it one to relish and admire for a long time.
