Our March Boxes Celebrate Teas from INDIA

Hello Tea Runners, 

Just for fun, we've decided to highlight teas from specific countries over the next few months. In March we're doing India!

India is the second largest tea producing country in the world with two of the most famous growing regions on the planet: Darjeeling and Assam. India is mostly known for it's black teas, so this month's Original Box and All Black Box contain the same four teas: one from Darjeeling, one from Assam, one from the Nilgiri district in the south, and an award-winning Masala Chai.  Our Pure Tea Box includes an Assam, Nilgiri, and two high end Darjeeling Reserve teas. 

Our Herbal Tea Box isn't entirely focused on India, but we did include an award-winning caffeine-free chai and a Tulsi Earl Grey. Tulsi - sometimes called 'holy basil' - is an herb originating from the Indian subcontinent and is commonly used in traditional Indian medicine. The other two random selections for the Herbal box include Herbal Root Beer and Apple Cider Rooibos, two of the tastiest herbal teas we've had in a while. 

Other countries we'll be highlighting in the coming months are Nepal, China, Japan & Sri Lanka. 

Enjoy! 

- Charlie & Jewel
