|5g (2 tsps)||250ml||90-95°C
The story of Niroula’s Smoky Wonder Black Tea reminds me of China's famous Lapsang Souchong- a happy accident. Eventually became a unique manufacturing process for a Darjeeling tea, this variant is made of hand-picked first flush whole leaves harvested this spring. To get the smoky flavor, the leaves are passed through a pine smoke chamber after the rolling procedure. Made in an estate that is focused on creating high-quality orthodox tea, they sought to capture the full flavors, delicate and fragrant aroma of Darjeeling in every cup.
The aroma will transport you to a warm, lush forest where you can enjoy every sip in peace and tranquility. The delicate aroma and fruity flavors is a wonderful source of refreshment.

For this reason, its chemical properties also underwent changes but have not lost the many benefits derived from the Camellia Sinensis leaves. Black teas have Theaflavin and Thearubigin, powerful antioxidants that can protect the drinker from stresses of the modern life.
