Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster
Submit
Aroma
Soft floral with light vegetal & sweet undertones
Appearance
Champagne
Taste
A light-bodied, brisk cup with a silky-smooth texture which glides effortlessly on the palate.

Delicate floral notes, reminiscent of blooming flowers, along with a subtle honeyed sweetness is discernible right from the start and hums along throughout the length of the cup.

Subtle vegetal accents shore up along the edges which however gradually fade to culminate in a refreshingly sweet finish that lingers on, making for a sublime experience of Spring from the verdant hills.

Marvellous journey through the flavour and aromas of India!

My Authentic Indian Chai Trial Pack has been providing a daily escape to the exotic world of Indian flavours and aromas. The teas are incredibly fresh and tasteful.

Disappointed.

You should call it "stem needle" or "silver stem" or just stem. I hate to give a negative review but this thing is not what it claims to be. Stems are not buds, I'm sorry. It sure has the sweetness and the woodyness as advertised, but I can't help but feel betrayed by marketing.
