This is a single origin, organic, black tea from the Himalayas in eastern Nepal, grown just across the border 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 that involves a lot of labour and careful monitoring to ensure that a superior product is acheived.

- OH YUM!Review by karenv
- Murchie's description is on point: Heady floral. I haven't yet learned to articulate tea tastes so all I can say is that I enjoy first flush Darjeelings and the floral/fruity oolongs. This tea is very smooth (Posted on 2014-05-05)
