Lakyrsiew Exotic Summer Black

description

This tea comes from the misty mountains of the Lakyrsiew estate in the northeastern state of Meghalaya. It has an intense floral flavor profile, quite unlike summer teas from this part of the country which tend be fruitier. But thats just what you grow to love about it.
