Meghalaya Lakyrsiew Autumnal
From the neighbouring region of Assam, in a mountainous chain extremely favourable to tea culture, comes this aesthetic black tea with long leaves combined with intoxicating coppery buds. This little-known terroir of Meghalaya and its garden Lakyrsiew provide after each year an exceptional quality with a distinct flavour profile.
Its liquor is round and offers a well-balanced supple tannic structure highlighted by its powdery texture reminiscent of cocoa. Its woody and caramelized notes nuanced by fine floral accents support its finish - both soft, and full of freshness.
A light, ethereal delivery.
