We at Chamong are always delighted to introduce our guests to this customized tea tasting session. It involves an introduction to the various types of teas manufactured in the Chamong Chiabari Tea Factory, and romancing your taste buds with the lovely and cheerful tea cups at our tea bar. Darjeeling tea is characterized by its rich flavour and colour. Tea tasting is all about determining the quality of the tea, as there is a vast variation in the tea qualities in terms of appearance and flavor owing to geographical and climatic conditions of a place. Tasting is done to ascertain the quality of a particular tea, prior to its dispatch for blending or sale. Basically it involves 3 steps towards determining tea quality. The first step is all about assessing the visual appeal of the dry leaf; followed by examining the liquor (when the dry leaf is infused in boiling water), and lastly the taste appraisal. A collection of unique blends presented in the session has always been a flavourful experience.
Such activities have helped the guests to savour the tea tourism Darjeeling experience at Chamong, in more ways than one!
