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.
One teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 1 minute, then steep tea 3 - 4 minutes. Tea can be steeped more than once.
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.

Dear Katharine, We are so thrilled to know that you enjoyed our Himalayan Golden Black Tea. Thank you so much for your great feedback and welcome to the NTT community. We truly appreciate it!
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 :)

Dear Ibeth, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We truly appreciate it!
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.
