Leaf Grade: FTGOP
Dry Leaf: Short, tightly-rolled black and brown leaves

Colour of Liquor: Dark Amber
Flavour of the Tea: The flavours in this summer tea are exceptionally well-rounded, ample in the mouth, quite aromatic, and intense enough to stand out
Compliments: A perfect complement to creamy desserts such as trifle or even an éclair.
Brewing Instructions: Always use fresh water. Bring water to near boiling point. Take one teaspoon of tea leaves in a cup. Pour the heated water and steep the tea for 4-5 mins. Adjust the time of brewing as per desired strength. Leaves can be steeped multiple times till it gives flavour.
Tea Master Recommendation: Best enjoyed without milk. Can add honey and lemon to taste. Always use fresh water. Do not use re-boiled water. The brewed leaves can be steeped multiple times with an increase in steeping time. Sip it when it cools down a little instead of boiling hot for enhanced flavour.
