A rare offering from Northern India, the estate is in Bihar, a poor area not well known for tea. However, the families making this tea have had great teachers and produce some outstanding handmade teas. This is a particularly complex tea. The initial flavor has a fruit sweetness which is followed by an earthy finish.
Insider Tip: We also offer a green tea and white tea from this estate! Experience the craftsmanship and variety this estate produces, try Doke Green Diamond and Doke Silver Needle.
Caffeine Level: Medium/High.
