Taste
Nestled among the foothills of the majestic Himalayas, the Ambootia tea estate, known as the 'Land of the Mango Trees,' has been cultivating a rich tea legacy since 1861.

As you savor this summer Specialty, you will encounter a medium-bodied infusion that bursts forth with a vivacious symphony of fruity notes.

From the first sip, the tea reveals a radiant display of juicy flavors reminiscent of the lush essence of plum joined with the exotic allure of mangosteen, creating a luscious interplay that caresses the palate in a truly unique manner.

As the tea unfurls its story, subtle whispers of musk gently intertwine with velvety hints of nuts, crafting a multidimensional tapestry of taste and texture. But the true enchantment lies in the final act, where the tea's essence takes a triumphant leap.

The spirited aromas of nectarines make their grand entrance towards the finale and persist long after the last sip, creating an indelible memory that lingers on, much like the warmth of a cherished summer day.

Milos Debnar (Ōtsu, JP)

It was my first order, but definitely not the last one. I've been drinking quite a lot of black tea everyday for a long time and I've tried many brands. This was by far the best. I really loved the deep flavour, smell of fresh leaves and the refreshing taste ideal for my afternoon tea.

Best Tea Ever

I should say, best black tea, but black tea rules all others anyway. This tea has incredible flavor, surpassing even my previous favorite (Nuwara Eliya, out of Sri Lanka). I wish I had got extra while it was on sale. Five stars. All the stars. Galaxies. Buy it.
