Inspired by the gentle breezes and warm sands of Polynesia, this exclusive flavoured blend transports you into one of Gauguin’s idyllic scenes in the heart of the Pacific. A unique combination of green tea and black tea, deliciously flavoured with almond and vanilla notes, it evokes Tahitian gardenia, almond milk, and jasmine. This delicate tea is an exotic gourmet treat.
