Teabox Private Reserve Temi Muscatel Tea

description

From the picturesque estate of Temi in Sikkim comes this wonderfully complex tea. It has prominent muscatel flavors with caramel and vanilla bean. The texture is silky and with a pleasant aroma of frangipani with an aftertaste of cocoa nibs. It’s a tea that’s surely putting SIkkim on the tea map of India.
