Product code: CSTN-66
Add to my notebook

From the neighbouring region of Assam, Meghalaya, comes this aesthetic tea with long leaves combined with intoxicating  coppery buds. Its liquor is round and offers a well-balanced 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.
