Khumbu Black Tea - Deep Amber | Malty | Nutty

Khumbu is a summer-picked black tea that reflects the beauty of the Khumbu region of Nepal, which is the gateway to Mount Everest and home to the Tengboche Monastery. This tea has a complex, amber-hued liquor with notes of red grape, malt, and toasted walnut. It is oxidized naturally and hand-rolled, which accentuates its fragrant notes of apricot and hazelnut.

    My favorite of Nepali Tea Traders black teas

    You won’t find another black tea quite like this one. Certainly other tea growing regions have different flavors. Malty teas are not easy to find. The big rolled leaves can be used more than once, I’ve found. I have a hot pot in the morning and pour in a little more water for a cold cup in the afternoon. Love it.

    Not what I was expecting, but good.

    I was looking for the black tea that they use in milk tea in the Khumbu region where I went trekking. This was much more mild and didn't make a great milk tea, but is good on its own for what it is.

    My favorite tea

    I have been ordering this particular tea from Nepali Tea Traders for years. I have it on the weekend as a special treat. It is the best tea I have found anywhere. Full of flavor and color. Takes me right back to the tea shop off New Road.

    The freshest black tea, vibrant, subtle flavor

    We loved this tea. We’ve bought several bags, and found it deep and fresh, capable of making a strong but not too bitter cup of black tea. Try this tea, you won't regret it.

    Khumbu

    Khumbu has jammy flavour notes, moderate to high tannins and a dry finish. It is packed with flavour and could possibly take a small splash of milk if infused longer. Khumbu is an ideal breakfast tea, and Assam drinkers should try it!
