This Grand Cru is made in Indonesia. It is harvested on the heights of Cisujen, at over 1,300 metres above sea level. This black tea's production method takes inspiration from Chinese Hong Cha (black teas), while also providing all this closely guarded soil has to offer.
A silky, sweet Grand Cru which reveals fine woody and honeyed fragrances, as well as a subtle rose note with a long finish.
