Niligiri Jasmine Green Tea

description

This is a perfumed blend of high-grown Darjeeling green tea that's scented with freshly plucked Indian jasmine, marigold and cornflowers. The tea serves as a counterpoint to the heady floral aromatics. Taking center stage is the jasmine, the undisputed diva here. Its fragrance stays with you long after you've taken the last sip.

I love this tea! It was the first one I tried from Tea Box and I was not disappointed ... I had been drinking Smith Teas and I have to say that the change to this tea was a decision made at first sip. Fabulous tea - light and with good floral aroma.

A fresh and delicate green tea

This is one of the best green teas I've ever had. So fresh, fragrant and delicately floral. I love the subtle jasmine scent and how it combines with the marigold and cornflower flavors. Somehow each time I drink it I am aware of a very slight mint flavor. I'm not sure why, since it doesn't appear to have mint in the ingredients, but it makes for a truly lovely aftertaste.
