Very nice aroma, but a bit light-bodied

Very nice aroma - reminiscent of a charcoal-roasted Tie Guan Yin. However, much lighter bodied than I would expect. It could use some more "oomph" on the mid-palate.

Himalayan Wine soon my favorite

I ordered the Himalayan Wine tea for the first time. I'm having my first cup right now, and I am pleasantly surprised. This may become my favorite tea! I love the full bodied taste, and yes, it has a slight hint of wine.

Good mainstream Darjeeling tea

It's a good quality, standard Darjeeling tea. It provided the taste which one expects when asking for Darjeeling tea. Note that it does not have the unique and unusual flavours found in some other TeaBox Darjeelings, which might be seen as more "luxury" products. Himalayan WIne is simply a "solid", mainstream choice when looking for Darjeeling tea.

Poor packaging

I have received the Tea vey nicely packed and sent, but the packet provided for keeping the tea was torn and was reported to you on WhatsApp. Till date no clarification received. If we get such service from you then this will be my last order.

High on caffeine and tasty with lemon and ginger, as well as milk. Your everyday fix kind of a good quality tea.

Like a Himalayan Forest

Exactly as the name. Aroma like a wine, floral, deep forest-ish, full of character.
