Reviewer: Maxim from Russia   5 Stars
I was "shocked" by this Nepal tea as it has such an uncommon taste and flavour! It's not just like tea - it's like a perfume with different notes, which go one after other: at first rich like some Chinese Yunnan teas, then flowery like Darjeeling. It sounds strange but I could compare it with single malt islay whisky! An excellent choice to make a surprise for guests, very good tea!
