Sweet forest honey notes in its flavor and aroma make a fine tribute-piece and paints a picture of the Lumbini Valley on your palate, in slow, vivid strokes. The 'slow-release nature reveal different characters across multiple infusions, beginning with flavor, aroma, antioxidants and then essential minerals. Exclusively produced in limited quantities, Jayachakra is a classic tea that opens the gateway to the beautiful world of Lumbini Tea Valley.
