This collection includes three pure and flavorful black teas from the Ilam region of Nepal (five ounces in total). The teas included in this collection are:
Himalayan Golden Black Tea - Named Best Black Tea - 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 the best Black tea by the North American Tea Championship.
Jasbirey Black – The fresh winds of Kanchenjunga that blow across the high fields of Jasbirey create this magical brew. Large leaves reveal the purity of the snow-clad mountains that surround Ilam during the autumnal season. This bold, yet balanced tea is defined by its rich amber color, subtle muscatel notes and balanced astringency.
Nepalese Himalayan Masala Spiced Black Tea Blend - An authentic medley of black tea lightly spiced with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and other spices traditional in Nepal. This tea comes in elegant pyramid bags, making the tea convenient to brew at home, in your office, or on the go. Also available as loose leaf tea.
