This is a single origin black tea from the Himalayas in eastern Nepal, grown just across the boarder from Darjeeling, India.
Just like Darjeeling teas, the terroir (high mountains, steep terrain, well-drained soil, extreme cold and intense heat, as well as a good level of rainfall) of the Himalayas is a major contributor to the character and floral aroma of this Nepalese tea.
Himalayan Tea also goes through a unique production process to ensure that it maintains its bright, lively, fresh and uplifting flavour:
This single origin tea provides a great bang for your buck. Great for Darjeeling lovers who are looking for a flavour variation, or for those who don’t love the strong muscatel of 2nd Flush Darjeeling but are still looking for a black tea that can stand on its own.
