Our expert impressions :Smooth and pleasant blend from the foothills of the Himalayas (Darjeeling) and the Blue Mountains (Nilgiri). These 2 regions produce teas with the same aromatic complexity. A deliciously aromatic tea with underlying floral and fresh notes brought by Darjeeling tea and harmonious and fragrant notes of hazelnuts brought by Nilgiri tea. A delicate cup for an exhilarating tasting on a stressful day !
