Doux, rond, onctueux à tout moment de la journée.
I had to order 3
This is my every day drinking tea. I love it so much, I bought 3 on my last order.
Light & delightful! I also brewed this for longer and chilled it, and was really tasty as an iced tea.
Very nice tea, calming before bed. It has a very fresh smell and is especially good for cold brewing. When cold brewed it gives you a brothy feeling.
