A lovely selection of flavorful teas
This was purchased as a gift for a friend who loves her tea. she was very happy with the selection in this box, and has enjoyed several flavorful cups so far. of the eight flavors included in this variety box, the assam tea is her favorite. she spent a year teaching in india, and since coming home has tried many different brands of assam tea. for her, the offering in this box from taylor comes the closest to the tea she remembers from india. the flavors come through as clear and pure, no odd artificial flavor aftertaste that can be found in lesser quality teas. the tea bags themselves allow for a good steep without letting bits of leaf seep out so the resulting cup of tea isn't cloudy or gritty. this box comes with 48 tea bags (six of each flavor) and is a good way to sample a variety of teas without committing to a box of one flavor only to find out you really don't like it. it's also a nice gift when combined with a pretty mug, shortbread or biscotti, and a great book.
