Our Review
On his first trip to Asia in 1996, Mike visited many tea estates. Chamraj was a very distinctive one, with a rhythmic rise and fall of the brilliant green tea fields, punctuated by lots of lovely flowers. He has kept his eyes open for teas from Chamraj ever since. This tea is good representative of teas from Nilgiri and is a sister estate to Korakundah.
Dry Leaves Black leaves that are about 1/2 inch long. The FOP means Flowery Orange Pekoe, referring to the larger size of the leaf. When the tea is made, it rolled between two large metal plates. Some the leaves retain the large size and some are crushed. The FOP are those leaves that retain the larger size.
Liquor A light brown liquor.
Aroma Light citrus notes.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body The larger leaf makes for a mellow tea, so it tends to be towards the lighter side for a black tea.
Flavors A nice mellow flavor with hints of citrus notes. It is often drunk with milk and sugar.
Brewing Time 2 to 3 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Very nice tea
Average Review:

I am pleased with my purchase of this tea. The dry leaf as well as wet leaf smell divine! I smell a hint of citrus in the leaf but I don't taste it, though I'm not a connoisseur, yet. I enjoyed this very much and plan to make it a regular in my rotation. Thank you, Harney & Sons!
