The Assam component gives the tea richness like a brocade at Versailles whereas the Nilgiri and Ceylon gives the tea a saucy but sprightly flavor. From Kenya there is romance and mystery with superb golden color notes and from China there is the delicate perfume of Jasmine so often used in Parisian perfumes.
