How to Find Tea with High Quality?

If you have been drinking low-quality tea for a long time, probably when you drink Iranian tea for the first time, you feel a real taste of tea. This is because Iranian tea has no added color or aromatic essence. It may be fainter or less fragrant than other teas, but it is much healthier. 

When you brew Iranian tea, it has a pleasant aroma and color, and even if it stays on the kettle for several hours, it doesn't turn black and dark. Use Iranian tea for a while. You will not change the relaxing and pleasant flavor of Iranian tea with another tea, and you will not go for other teas.
