Free Tea Tasting Schedule
Free Indian and Sri Lankan Black Tea Tasting - Sat. Apr. 18 12:30pm-3:30pm, 20% off for these teas during the tasting hours for both in store and online customers.
For the free tasting this week we will try some unique Indian and Sri Lankan black teas. Each one comes from a different growing region, and each tea offers a unique experience, from the dry leaves all the way to the delicious brew. We will sample a 1st flush darjeeling which will be light and grassy with the special flavor darjeeling is known for. We will sample a superior grade Assam tea which will be rich, malty, and smooth, with a sweet aftertaste. Finally, we will taste a superior grade Ceylon tea which is dark and earthy with a slight bite like dark chocolate.
Darjeeling 1st Flush, This 100% organic Darjeeling tea is handpicked during the first flush season (late February to early April) in the high altitude of Darjeeling, India. Silver tea buds are present, well rolled, and elongated. The infusion has a fragrant floral aroma, a mellow honey toned flavor, and a mild sweet aftertaste..
Superior Assam, A very special Assam tea from the famous Meleng Estate in the lush, tropical, north-eastern corner of India along the Brahmaputra River. Complemented by generous golden tips, this tea brews a bright amber liquor with rich, smooth, yet sophisticated flavor complemented by a nice fruity and chocolaty aroma..
Superior Ceylon, This very special Ceylon tea is from New Vithanakande Estate, near the world famous Sinharaja rain forest in southern Sri Lanka. The delicate, small, tippy leaves produce a rich, aromatic cup with chocolaty note and lingering sweet aftertaste. Very smooth and silky. It is one of the finest black teas in the world..
