I may have returned to the office a bit too early.
I really needed this tea at the end of this day.
Still very light, smoky and smooth, this green tea returned at least a bit of energy I had this morning.
This novel, pearl-shaped tea used to be the province of Chinese tea-makers, but it seems Rohini tea estate has learned the secret – and extremely well. This is a lovely, relaxing casual tea with nice, fresh green tea characteristics, and something of the oolong about it, as well. It boasts a distinctive flavor profile and can deliver various nuances to the discerning palette if steeped several times at one sitting. This unusual, vivid, fresh-tasting tea is a perfect alternative when a meaningful diversion or the entertainment of the senses is in order.
