I have tried many teas over the years but nothing prepared me for these.A little background. Right now, I cannot indulge as I'd like to with fine tea ao I've been making do. I have a hard time "spoiling " myself, preferring to do for others before me.I got this set to give away at a company party since I wanted to do something special for a fellow tea lover and I had heard high praise for these teas.However, due to a shipping error, these arrived the day after the party! There I was with this amazing set and no one to give it to. I could drink it without feeling guilty and I set about making my first cup of Saffron Chai.The Saffron Chai is without a doubt the best tea I have ever had. It hits the correct balance of robust black tea flavor and delicate spices. Everything blends perfectly and works to transform into a unique, yet comforting, taste that transported me into a mini vacation.The other two teas were also exquisite and all of them were gone all too soon. The tins are marvelous for little treasures and very well made.As soon as I can, I plan on indulging in many more cups of this amazing tea.Kudos to the person who came up with this blend.
