Description

After a short summer season in Nepal, the Himalayan monsoon approaches the foothills with a magnanimous rush. The golden-red soil of Sandakphu drinks in this moisture, producing a rare artisan tea that reflects all of nature’s goodness. After plucking, the leaves are 25 percent withered, then rolled in mechanical rollers. The tea is then placed in a shaping machine and further dried, producing uniformly curled leaves. The liquor is a distinctive rich golden color, with a cup that is mild yet flavorful, with a lovely balance of stone fruit and honey.  We were honored when the tea was selected as the best Black tea by the North American Tea Championship.

Green tea fan -- call me blown away!

I am a long time green team & oolong fan who had basically written out black tea as an option. Usually they are too astringent and the mouth feel is not to my liking. I bought the Himalayan after seeing SO many reviews speak of the smooth & mellow flavor... I thought, "Well, Nepali Teas have been great...why not try it!" I LOVE THIS TEA. It is indeed smooth & mellow -- flavor without the astringent mouth feel. It may be my new favorite --- in fact, I switched to the "subscription" in hope to never run out :)

This is my favorite morning tea. It is very versatile. It is good by itself brewed either mild or strong, and it is good with other types of tea added before steeping. I appreciate that the NTT teas are all very clean, with no dust or twigs included. The flavors are clean and natural, with no hints of pesticide residues as found in other teas. Thank you NTT for offering these clean teas.

Himalayan Golden Black Tea

My favorite tea making procedure of this leaf. Warm teapot with hot water (special clay that breathes), one and half teaspoon of leaves, rinse leaves with hot water. Pour in hot water, the seeping time depends my mood. Usually 5 min to 8 max minutes (8 minutes is after a day of long work). Once use tea leaves once. Do not use plastic utensils, that will make the tea bitter.
