Very nice green tea. Flavour is fresh, caffein is low. You can drink it anytime. My tea cup is 14 fl and I only put in two spoons and it's just the right balance.

This green tea is one of its kind, a really refreshing flavor as mentioned by other reviewers. As soon as I opened it, the aroma reminded me of alphonso mangoes that I have in monsoon. Even though it has fruity aroma, it has its own characteristic. Its light on palate and refreshes ur mind. One of the best green teas I had.

A nice change

This was my first Indian Green tea, although as I used to live in Japan I have had many green teas from the far east. This was a very good tea, noticeably darker than most far eastern ones. Very good value for money and well worth trying a sample (which was very cheap when I had it).

I am not very knowledgable about green tea and drink less of it than black or oolong tea. This is a finely balanced and delicate tea with lots of nuances. It is pleasantly refreshing, soft and ethereal. Friends have enjoyed it too! And they are green tea connoisseurs!

Very Subtly Flavored

Likes : Freshness.

Best Served : Evening, Dessert Tea.

I don't know what I was expecting from this Himalayan Relish, but the "tropical fruit" flavor is rather elusive to my palate. That said, the blend is certainly pleasant enough to drink. I would compare the quality to that of Palais des Thes flavored green tea blends. The base green tea seems to be very similar. The main difference, again, is the subtlety of the added flavors. I actually have no idea which "tropical fruits" are supposed to be implicated here. Even sniffing the dried leaves does not solve the mystery! That said, Himalayan Relish seems like a safe choice for people who prefer blends to pure green teas, but this one is closer to a pure tea than most flavored blends. It is light and thirst quenching. Don't forget to use cooler water (80C is what I used) and a short steep time (3 mins tops). Also don't forget to reinfuse the spent leaves for a second round!
