“Tea on the Nile” is truly a like and egyptian mystery. When you open the tin you smell a sharp, spicy, defined aroma, almost a smell of antiquity. The great surprise comes after brewing this tea – the aroma is much more attractive and completely different – sweet and fruity with a milder spicy note. The liquor is of bright yellow color and delicate taste. Although I had to convince myself to this tea at first, I think it’s an excellent composition.
It comes in the classic and recognized black tin with yellow logo print additionally packed in a cardboard box of the same colors. If works perfect as a whole, however I wouldn’t recommend this tea for beginners, as it’s a rather complex flavor and the initial aroma might be a turn-off.
This is a tea you will NEVER forget.
