TEA REVIEW – Rangsaa Elevate

elevate-reviewDry Leaves
Tea is a blend of tender black tippy tea leaves with exotic herbs and spices. There are scattered golden tips with white fuzz. The blend of brown and green color scheme, gives it an elegant and sophisticated appeal, and a woodland feel. Aroma is strong and enticing – with oaky, spicy, floral, sweet and citrusy (precisely ripe peaches) hints.

Infused tea/Unique Characteristics
The leaves brew a golden-amber color liquor. The aroma is herbaceous and spicy. On the palate, the infusion is distinctively vibrant and balances bouquet of complex aroma and flavors, with a mellow sweetness, and a wonderful buttery-mouthfeel. The top malty, smokey and citrusy notes, pleasantly heighten the underlying caramel-floral essence. The texture is thick and creamy, and it coats the mouth with a delicious sweet-aftertaste.

Infusion
One heaping teaspoon of tea was infused in 200 ml pre-boiled water (100C) for 7 minutes. The infusion is medium-full body, with almost no astringency and bitterness. When brewed for 10 minutes, the aroma and flavors were delightfully enhanced. The second infusion at 15 minutes carried forward some attributes – a good cup of tea for those who like mild, delicate teas.

This is a harmonious tea blend, which is equally flavorful and aromatic. Even brewed at 20 mins the tea is not bitter. There’s no way you can ruin this tea. It’s that good. Make it how you like it!
