Review Factors

What are we looking for? A cup of deliciously aromatic tea. The floral flavors of rose in Gulabo and the rich warmth of saffron in Saff  Zaff.

While reviewing Samaara Teas, we have set the following review parameters:

1. Flavor 

The following pointers were checked here: 

  1. How strong/kadak is the chai?
  2. How is the overall flavor of the tea?
  3. Are the different flavorings (saffron/rose) prominent?

What is CTC Tea? CTC tea stands for Crush, Tear, Curl tea This technique of processing tea leaves is frequently employed in the creation of black teas. With this approach, the tea leaves are broken down into tiny pellets by crushing, tearing, and curling them. This method produces a stronger, bolder flavor by accelerating the oxidation of the tea leaves and extracting more flavor.

The appearance of the final chai color also proved crucial in our testing phase. How appealing does the final cup of chai look? How does the tea look with and without milk? 

3. Aroma 

How bold and enticing is the aroma of these teas considering the flavorings added (rose and saffron)?

In addition, also noted information on the price, packaging and shelf life.

Samaara Tea – Detailed Review

Before proceeding with the detailed review, here’s a quick glimpse our review process: 

Review Process 

We followed identical testing procedures to evaluate the taste, aroma, and color of both Samaara Tea variants.

For our review process, we conducted the testing in two different ways: 

  1. Black tea
  2. With milk

1. Samaaara Gulabo Rose Black Tea

Product Details 

A 250 gm pet jar is priced at Rs. 499. It has a shelf life of 1 year. 

The key ingredients are : black tea and natural rose flavor. 

Our Take 

While this CTC tea may seem ordinary at first glance, as soon as you open the jar, you will be greeted with a strong and wonderful rose aroma. The aroma does not feel artificial at any point, but it is rather gentle. 

The first sip was a delightful surprise, wherein the strength of a good “kadak” chai , subtle sweetness and floral notes of rose all come together beautifully. The best part? The rose flavor does not come out boldly.

Talking about the strength – this tea offers that gratifying “kadak” sensation that revives you in the morning or offers a soothing warmth in the evening.

2. Samaara Saff Zaff Saffron Black Tea

Product Details 

Samaara’s Saff Zaff tea comes in a resealable pouch pack. A 250 gm pack is priced at Rs. 285. This has 1 year of shelf life. 

The main ingredients seen here are : Black tea, Natural flavor (Saffron) (5%), Saffron.

Our Take 

This chai patti might resemble your regular chai initially, but the dominant, rich and warm aroma of saffron is surely unmissable. We could also see a few strands of saffron in the pack.

Straight from the initial sip, you will be welcomed with a harmonious blend of flavors. In addition to the characteristic flavor of CTC tea, this combines subtle and sweet undertones of saffron. The saffron flavor is not dominant here but it is mild in the sense that it will uplift your entire experience while preserving its traditional chai essence. 

Apart from a delightful aroma and flavor, this tea excels strength-wise too. It beautifully delivers the satisfying kadak chai feeling we all expect out of a cup of tea. 

In contrast to certain strong teas that can be overpowering, Saff Zaff is pleasant and smooth, allowing you to appreciate its unique flavor without becoming overwhelmed.
