Himalayan Golden Black Tea - Rich | Mellow | Notes of Honey | Bold

Himalayan Golden is a striking, award-winning black tea picked during the monsoon season in Sandakphu, Nepal. Its rich, deep amber liquor has notes of malt, clover honey, and burnt sugar, highlighted by aromatic notes of apricot and clove. It is a great breakfast tea that can be enjoyed with or without milk and sugar. This tea was awarded as the best black tea by the North American Tea Championship.

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 resulting in beautiful Himalayan Golden Tea.

    Highly Recommended Tea

    This is a great tea to share with friends and family. We begin each day with this tea as it is tasty and mellow and gives us the boost we need to begin the day. It is great plain or with milk added.

    My favorite so far

    Love the smoothness of this tea. With a splash of milk, this is a delightful and daily morning cup.

    Even better than the description

    This is a favorite of mine. Starting this time of year I make a lovely cup in the morning then pour in some extra hot water to make an extra cup to chill for later in the day. The second brew is a little milder for a great iced tea.
