Add to my notebook

This high altitude garden, close to the Nepalese border in Darjeeling (India), presents us with a black tea cultivated and transformed in traditional fashion. This Autumn harvest has all the qualities a black tea lover is looking for. 

The amber liquor reveals sweet aromas of brown sugar that transfer to the mouth and blend with woodsy and cereal notes of rye and classic malt typical of the teas of this season.

A lingering sensation of comfort remains in the mouth long after each sip.
