We were given this tea as a gift from a friend who had taken their honeymoon in Tahiti; we can only presume the tin we were given was very old, as it had almost no aroma upon opening (from all accounts, the Tiare flower’s aroma is extremely strong). The tea is itself a Ceylon, and while being a serviceable morning tea it is nothing distinctive in and of itself, though it is warmly smooth and pretty enjoyable, even at this age.

This note should not be taken very seriously, as obviously we got a bad sample; the foundation seems fine on this tea so perhaps a full-flavored cup would be something special, we simply can’t tell.
