Product: Basilur Four Seasons Summer Tea
Usp: The Chinese green leaf tea has natural strawberries, marigold, cornflower and flavoured wild strawberries
Price: Rs 849 for 125 gm

At first glance, the only thought that will come to your mind is, “How expensive is this product!” "
Rs 849 for 125 gm is not something you buy easily.

But the moment you realise that those 125 grams will probably last you for a year or maybe longer (depending on how much you can keep your hands off it) things start falling into perspective.

In terms of refreshing green teas, this is the best we’ve had so far. Not more than a pinch is needed to brew a light golden cup of green tea.

The strawberry fragrance is the most overpowering feature — a slight whiff before you actually sip it and you’re relaxed. Though this variety is called summer tea, we wouldn’t mind having it through the year.
