Okayti Classic Spring Black Tea

description

Located at 6,500 feet, Okayti is among the highest tea gardens in India. Here, the rigors of elevation combined with organic farming practices have helped produce some of most delicious Darjeeling teas. And this year too, their spring black tea lives up to the expectations. It’s well-styled and tastes fresh, bright, incredibly smooth and well-balanced - a near perfect spring tea.
