    KNOW YOUR TEA

    The teas from Harmutty Estate are known for producing one of the finest and orthodox teas produced in Assam. Beginning with a signature malty note that lasts for the entire length of the cup, the luscious flavors akin to dates, and subtle tones of dried drupes slowly begin to emerge. The journey ends with delicate accents of nutty wood and succulent vibrant notes of red berries enveloping the palate, making it an aromatic, brisk, and delicious cup of summer black tea.

    The liquor is full-bodied, brisk which starts with robust notes of malt and hums along throughout the length of the cup. Towards the middle, delectable flavors akin to dates blend harmoniously with nuanced tones of dried drupes; rendering a mellow character to the liquor. Subtle woody accents shore up around the edges and towards the end, which however subside to finish on luscious notes of red berries; making for an exquisite experience of Assam summer black tea.
