We report the angle dependent high field (up to 140 kOe) magneto transport of Bi2Te3 single crystals, a well-known topological insulator. The crystals were grown from melt of constituent elements via solid state reaction route by self-flux method. Details of crystal growth along with their brief characterisation up to 5 Tesla applied field was reported by some of us recently (Sultana et al 2017 J. Magn. Magn. Mater. 428 213). The angle dependence of the magneto-resistance (MR) of Bi2Te3 follows the cos (theta) function i.e., MR is responsive, when the applied field is perpendicular (tilt angle theta = 0 degrees and/or 180 degrees) to the transport current. The low field (+/- 10 kOe) MR showed the signatures of weak anti localisation character with typical nu-type cusp near origin at 5 K. Further, the MR is linear right up to highest applied field of 140 kOe. The large positive MR are observed up to high temperatures and are above 250% and 150% at 140 kOe in perpendicular fields at 50 K and 100 K respectively. Heat capacity C-P (T) measurements revealed the value of Debye temperature ((sic)D) to be 135 K. Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy data clearly showed that the bulk Bi2Te3 single crystal consists of a single Dirac cone.
