   Harvested from higher elevations of the Puttabong Estate, this selection was produced without the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. The Kakra designation refers to a leaf visited by the Indian Green Fly, whose ministrations to the leaf cause an initial fermentation before plucking. The liquor has classic muscatel notes, as well as hints of date, accented with light pine needle essence.

Employee Recommendations:  
Name: Karen
"I steeped the dark chocolate colored leaf for 3 minutes in boiling point (212F) water. The glowing, dark-amber tea liquor has a rich aroma of fruits and chestnuts. I find the flavor, its richness bursting in my mouth, reminiscent of an Oolong tea in its nutty, almost woody quality. I also detected faint notes of fruit in the smooth cup. A delicious and unique second flush offering!"
