description

The north-east of India makes small batches of boutique teas and this one’s a blend of the best. The light-bodied liquor cleanses the palate as it opens up to flavors of grilled greens inlaid with the sweet taste of corn. This rare cup is hand-sorted and pan-fried using firewood giving it a marked smokiness. This also offers a unique warmth when mixed with the flavors of toasted grains present in this cup. A nutty aftertaste completes this classic green tea experience.

aroma:
Lifted notes of cooked corn, grilled greens, smokey, firewood and toasted nuts

Chartreuse
taste:
The liquor is light-bodied, feels ample in the mouth and starts with a distinct smoky, grilled greens note which gradually grows big to define the central theme of the cup. Towards the middle, notes of fresh legumes and toasted grains can be perceived interlaced with muted flavours of sweet corn which hums along in the background; balancing the deep vegetal attributes and rendering a mellow character to the cup. A subtle nutty flavor can be picked up in the aftertaste.
