Please note: Natural flavours used in this high-quality tea tend to be somewhat ‘soft ‘ and the flavors slightly muted. Due to the high quality of this tea, there is no need to "mask" the taste of the tea with overpowering artificial flavours (as is the case with lower quality tea). This is a desired attribute of high quality naturally flavoured teas.
