This was the first tea I ever tasted from NM Tea Co; and it was served to me by a friend in NM who frequents your shop. I had never tasted any tea so intriguing and I HAD to order more. This particular batch is just as palatable as the last: floral, multi-layered and, frankly, addictive! By far, my all-time favorite tea of yours.

this is a great tea. floral with a hint of citrus, and not too perfumey, i didn't find either the bergamot or the jasmine to be too overpowering of the green teas taste. a good pick me up type of tea.
