Experience the austere beauty and warm hospitality of Mongolian Horse Culture with Tea & Takhi. Central to Mongolia’s culture and heritage are the Takhi (native, wild horses). Nowhere are horses more central to daily life than in Mongolia. A traditional proverb sums it up: "A Mongol without a horse is like a bird without the wings." Within a land of fiercely independent, nomadic herdsman, horses are regarded as a source of both life and wealth. Horses also play a significant role in Mongolian spiritual beliefs; the word Takhi translates to Spirit or Spiritual. Mares’ milk is used for religious offerings and to made various foods such as Suutei Tsai (Mongolian Milk Tea) which is salty rather than sweet and is often enriched with butter. If you are ever to visit Mongolia, you will be welcomed with this warm and nourishing beverage which is an important part of Mongolian hospitality.

Tea & Takhi perfume capture the moment and place with the scent of buttered tea, grass/hay and horses. Tea, Butter, Salt and a touch of Smoke open the perfume before segueing into notes of Grass and Hay. Leather and a warm Horse Accord featuring real oud set you firmly in the saddle.

I want you to love your purchase! The best way to ensure this is to try a sample size before investing in a full size product. Remember that everyone has unique skin chemistry so it pays to "try before you buy".

Since perfume is a body product, I can't except returns for obvious hygiene concerns. The exceptions to this rule would be an incorrect item being shipped or a faulty mechanism such as a sprayer that didn't work.
