Another innovation coming from Doke estate in Bihar, India. Rolling Thunder is processed like an oolong but notes and appearance resemble much of the black so we're classifying it as such. This orthodox tea combines sweetness with just a bit of astringency. Brisk but doesn't dominate, it is bright tasting with a balanced personality not often derived from an Assamica variety.
Origin: Bihar, India
BENEFITS: Black teas are fully oxidized and have undergone several processes more than white & green teas. 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.
Steeping Time: Always wash the leaves twice with hot water for a period of about 20 seconds each time to prime the dry leaves.
Note: High quality teas can be steeped for several more times. In the case of black teas, it can be steeped 7-8 more times! Please do not leave the tea leaves steeping in water. Remove it as soon as soon as you have achieved the desired strength to stop the brewing process. Of course, if you like your tea strong, you can steep it longer. Now, hold your cup and enjoy your perfect cup of tea!
