Ketlee is proud to bring you the most rare and unique teas from various corners of India. This time, we bring you Orthodox Village Style Smoked Black tea from Manipur. Made from ancient plants(yes, again!), our Orthodox Smoked Black Tea is the original and traditional tea prepared and consumed by the hill artisans over the centuries.
This is a strong and dark tea with a senational smoky flavour and an extra strong caffeine punch. The distinct smoky flavour makes it a very unique tasting tea, it has a slight touch of Pu'erh and are quite similar to Singhpo's Falap Coins but unlike them these are in a convenient to use Loose Leaf form.
Processing : This tea is handpicked, withered, hand-rolled, oxidised, sundried and then smoked in forest firewood. The rolled leaf will not be fully sun dried and the complete drying will take place on top of the kitchen fireplace for several days until the desired smokiness level is achieved.
