Black tea from Assam, chosen for its powerful and full-bodied flavour, serves as the base of this blend. It's the backbone of the whole thing, offering a warm and reassuring basis upon which the rich subtleties of black tea can shine. The introduction of apple bits elevates the blend's flavour by adding a touch of sweetness and fruitiness without overwhelming the palate.
The toasted nuttiness of the walnut bits is pleasant, like eating a handful of freshly roasted walnuts. There's a hint of decadence in every sip, and the velvety smoothness coats your tongue and palate. The nuttiness of the almond pieces enriches the tea with a new dimension of flavour. Tea sipping is taken to a new level by the addition of delicate rose petals, which create an appealing display of colours. These petals contribute a delicate flowery flavour without overpowering the dish.
