Nina’s Japon from Nina’s Paris can be found on Nina’s Tea Store online or at the international shop, too! What I love about this offering is that it’s a black and green tea blend. Having said that, tho, you can taste the green tea much more than the black tea. The black tea ‘flavor’ is barely there. The green tea, however, is pretty, well, ‘green tasting’. It’s more of a flowery-flavored green tea taste than a juicer green. The vanilla and caramel notes are lovely. I almost mistakenly took the vanilla/caramel combo for an almond-type flavor. But it contributed to the overall creaminess of the blend and it was delightful.
I enjoyed the 2nd infusion a bit more than the first because the green tea was a bit more subtle but the other flavors stepped up to the plate a little more than in the first infusion. This was very nice hot, at room temperature, and cold, too! I was able to get at least 6 infusions out of it. The more I drank it the more I enjoyed it and appreciated the blend masters blending talents. This is a nifty offering and a mighty fine blend!
