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

15 reviews


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.

    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.

    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.

    Ordered this tea because of the Himalayan tea at a local coffee shop, and this stuff is even better than their tea! Definitely best black tea I have ever had and possibly better than any other tea I have had! Thanks for the great tea!

    Hi Connor, We are so thrilled to know that you enjoyed our Himalayan Golden Organic Black Tea. Thank you so much for your great feedback. We truly appreciate it!


    I'm picky when I come to my tea, I brew in the style of gong fu cha. When I purchased this tea from whole foods I was expecting something bad like Chinese grocery store tea. I was however very, very pleasantly surprised by the depth and complexity of the deeply rich chocolate aroma and nutmeg and mace like notes in the tea as well as a tart fruit finish, and a nice lasting astringency. This tea could put him Jun Mei to shame, I'd love to know the cultivar it comes from!
