Jungpana Special Summer Chinary Black Tea

description

Staying true to its impeccable reputation as one of Darjeeling’s iconic tea estates, this tea from Jungpana is smooth, vibrant, and is filled with complex flavors. The woody caramelized notes contrasted with tropical fruity flavours will be enjoyed greatly by new tea enthusiasts. Yet, there’s something for the seasoned connoisseur too - the steady undercurrent of grapes.

The liquor is medium-bodied, brisk, and smooth. Notes similar to firewood can be perceived instantly which render a slightly caramelized feel at the start. This is smoothened out by sweet fruity flavors which emerge in the middle. Undertones of grapes flow throughout and give the cup a lingering sweet finish.
