Amber Red is a double-roasted black tea with sweet, full flavors. Thanks to the double-roasting, this tea has almost no astringency or dryness.
This year's harvest has the same, sweet-smooth profile for easy-drinking but with more balanced flavors. Notes of milk chocolate, molasses, and grapes, with earthy undertones of sweet potato. The aftertaste is incredibly sweet and thick for a black tea.
The leaves have a strong, lush fragrance with radish undertones that are characteristic of Nepal's high-altitude teas.
