Monks tea

At the time of the Silk Road and the great caravans, travelers and merchants who traveled for trade in Asia often stayed in monasteries to rest before hitting the road. As a thank you for their hospitality and lodging, guests gave spices or tea to the monks.

One day, a Tibetan monk mixed up green tea with black tea and added there jasmine, vanilla and bergamot. This mysterious alchemy was born a tasty mix: the famous teas Monks.

The monk did taste the various visitors who remained amazed by this excellent brew. The story goes that this mix was so refined and delicious that even exchanged against gold.
