An ancient legend tells of how the Tibetan monks would prepare this blend of tea, plants and flowers in the greatest of secrecy. After several days of soaking, the leaves were carefully plucked out and put to one side.

By this mysterious alchemy, the monks turned the tea into gold and gave it its exceptional scent.

The tea is very unusual and delicious. I was given a free sample, and found it online and ordered it at once. I drink it every day.
