Ganesh Himal Classic Spring Black Tea

description

The flavors in this spring pick aren't as hearty as Nepalese teas can be. But the mellow note of fruits and garden flowers ensures its place among the best teas from this region.

Would have liked more chamomile in the flavor profile

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

Nice low-caffeine tea. Brews very clear and is deep gold/orange in hue. I had hoped for more of a chamomile flavor in the taste profile, as hinted at on the packaging. The liquor is slightly too vegetal in its flavor profile for my tastes. I think its high in quality but not quite my favorite taste on a personal level. I think fans of earthy teas will enjoy this one. Thank you to Teabox for sending me this tea complementary with my order. I appreciate the sample very much!
