I bought this tea on a recent trip to India. They claim that this tea is used by the Indian government as a state gift, and has been given to Bill Clinton and Junichiro Koizumi, hence the name “President’s Tea”. The company also claims to have been featured in TIME magazine, but I can’t find any mention of this at all on the web.

In any case, onto the tea itself: it had me at the first whiff of its fragrance. The tea is very fragrant when brewed, floral but not overwhelmingly so; and for some reason it makes me a feel a little tingle at the back of my head when I get a whiff. The liquid is clear with a bright golden color. The tea is mildly astringent, and has a light feel on the mouth with a subtle grape flavor and scent.

I’m already kicking myself in the butt for not buying more of this tea while I was in India, but oh well, that just means I have to save this for special occasions. I would experiment by adding milk or lemon, but given how little of the tea I have I think I’ll just have it straight ;)

In sum, the best Indian tea I have had so far, and something I would recommend to anyone.

P.S. – I have the autumn harvest of this tea so I don’t know what the spring one is like.
