Lhotse Black Tea - Invigorating | Flavorful | Raisin | Roasted Pecans

This fine Organic Black tea, grown in Jasbirye Village, has a beautiful amber liquor and subtle stone fruit aromas. Invigorating and flavorful, it's an exceptional morning tea. These rare artisan teas are hand-rolled followed by Mechanical rolling to give a fine twist, it is completely oxidized sometime over 26 hours at 6500 feet elevation. The constant flow of cold mist supplied by nature at this altitude makes the oxidation (natural fermentation) process extremely slow which allows a gradual change of Polyphenols to flavanoids (theaflavins and thearubigins) to the extent that it is almost equal in ratio. Once the desired color and nose (flavor) is attained during this natural oxidation process this tea is dried slowly and matured with time and perfection.

    A bit woody

    Obviously high quality tea but a bit woody or twiggy tasting for my taste.

    Still looking....

    An enjoyably smooth tea. Not picking up the raisin flavor, but the pecans are definitely there as well as the maltiness. The smoothness of this tea conjures up images of a satin ribbon slide awaiting the drinker's journey into tea bliss. But for me, I'm still search for "that" tea........But for smoothness, this black can't be beat!!!

    A wonderful cup with a mellow power

    Has a natural maltiness that feels like Chinese black tea, combined with a fullness of body. No astringency to speak of. Takes sugar well and resteeps nicely.

    My go to morning cup of tea.

    It is delicious. I have had this since December but was running through some other teas I had already opened. This tea is so smooth! No bite at all...I love it. I am pleased to assist with fair trade items and the story behind this tea is inspiring! Highly recommend this tea.

    Great Flavor and Aroma,Excellent Tea

    This is one of my new favorite teas. The aroma of the dry leaf smells extremely good. The liquor tastes sweet, fruity malty with a hint of chocolate. I must say this is an excellent tea. M loving it:)
