REVIEW – Doke Black Infusion by Lochan Tea

Doke tea reviewDescription of Tea
The dry leaves consist of long, dark, hand-rolled, twisted leaves with scattered tips. The aroma is woody, sweet and earthy.

Infused Tea/Unique Characteristics
The leaves brew a golden-brown liquor that has multitude of flavors. The infusion is medium-bodied, with zero astringency and buttery mouthfeel. The distinct amber and muscatel notes, delightfully compliment the subtle hints of malt and cocoa, giving the brew a very crisp, clean finish, and a refreshing aftertaste. The merger of flavours is adventurous! 

1 tsp of leaves were infused in 230 ml pre-boiled water at  95 C for 2 minutes. I got three infusions out of this tea. Each of the three steeps I had were engaging, perfectly smooth and well balanced.

This is a very unique and interesting black tea. The way it’s tasting notes unfurl with the leaves, is very intriguing. It made me curious and I wanted to bond with it more, with every sip.
