This is my first tea review and I’m glad to start with this great black tea from Lochan Tea. They are located in India and they are already very well known for their high quality teas. Dry tea leaves are mostly yellow and somewhat black which is reminiscent of Yunnan black teas. Truthfully, had I not known it’s from India I’d have easily mistaken it for Yunnan red teas.
It’s very smooth, naturally sweet, no astringency whatsoever. Therefore you do not need sugar or milk. It’s true that only low quality tea requires sugar or milk! Furthermore; it’s got a nice, surprising hint of chocolate flavor.
