Product Details

For this tea, our master blender combines Assam and Nilgiri black teas from India and Ceylon from Sri Lanka with exotic dragonfruit flavor. The result is a rich, pleasantly sweet tea with a taste reminiscent of lychee fruit or melon.

On the border of China, Burma and Bangladesh, 120 miles to the east of Darjeeling, lies the Assam valley in India. The climate, soil, and indigenous tea plants' genetic make-up give Assam teas their characteristic full-bodied strong taste and dark liquor. The best Assam teas are known for their unique maltiness.

Nilgiri is a Tamil word that means "Blue Mountains". The Blue Mountains are a lush range at the southernmost tip of India, rising over the Indian Ocean with a view toward Africa. Nilgiri teas are full-bodied with light color and aroma.

Ceylon, or its contemporary name Sri Lanka, is a beautiful tropical island that lies just off the southern tip of India. Ceylon teas enjoy the seasonal monsoons which encourage their growth. Select tender leaves result in a smooth and light flavor.

I used to love this tea. Purchased it a few times and it would disappear quickly. It's been a little while since I have purchased some so I purchased it again recently, It's just not the same tea at all anymore. I understand there is variance from season to season, batch to batch, this is far more than a variation. It's a different tea, bitter and un-pleasant no matter how long or short its brewed.

This tea smells lovely, and tastes just as good. The dragonfruit flavor is strong but not overpowering, and the black tea provides a good base for it. Great for a pick-me-up around mid-afternoon.

Interesting flavor

I don't taste anything earthy in this tea. In fact, the flavor reminds me of SweeTarts candies. I imagine that's the melon note coming out. It's not aggressive, just a delightful little sweet and slightly tart note along with the mellow notes of the black tea.
