Hoodle Classic Spring Black Tea

description

This is the first time we are featuring a tea from Kangra’s Hoodle tea estate. Farmed in the pristine lands that stretch out of the outer Himalayan range, one can easily pick fragrances and flavors of a mountainous, river-run valley in this tea – herbs, wood, and wet stone.
